Police say that Glen Green, 23, followed and sexually assaulted a woman who was jogging in Meridian Hill Park, just before 7 a.m. on April 21.
According to police evidence, Green followed the woman as she turned into in an alleyway near 14th and Chapin streets NW. Green, who police say is “much larger” than the victim, then punched her repeatedly, dragged her behind a dumpster, forced her to undress and then sexually assaulted her.
After the assault, Green demanded money from the victim, stole her iPod and fled the scene. The victim was able to return home and dial 911.
Detectives arrested Green one day after the crime occurred with help from several witnesses and a surveillance video that captured Green leaving the scene of the crime.
Green will be sentenced on Aug. 21.
