40 Years Later, Rockville Man Arrested for Molesting Minor

Montgomery County Police have arrested and charged a Rockville man for molesting a minor four decades ago.

David Wayne Brown, 70, is accused of sexually abusing an 11-year-old from 1981 to 1983.

Detectives from the Special Victims Investigations Division (SVID) began an investigation in December 2021 after receiving sexual abuse allegations from an adult male.

“At the time these offenses occurred, the 11-year-old victim babysat for Brown, who was approximately 29 years old,” according to police. The alleged incidents took place in the areas of Vandalia Drive in Rockville and Homecrest Road in Silver Spring.

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant on July 1 and charged Brown with second and third-degree sex offenses.

Brown was arrested and transported to the Central Processing Unit on July 5. He was released on a $20,000 unsecured personal bond.

Detectives believe there may be additional victims sexually abused by Brown. Police urge anyone who believes themselves to be a victim to contact SVID at 240-773-5400 or Crime Solvers of Montgomery County at 1-866-411-8477.
