(WMAR) — Prince George's County police arrested a man accused of raping three victims, two of whom were Howard University students.

According to police, they charged 35-year-old Julian Everett for three sexual assaults that happened in 2005, 2015, and 2016.

They say Everett's 2016 victim was 17-years-old when he contacted her through an unofficial Facebook group for incoming freshman at the university. He then picked her up at her dorm took her to a nearby barbershop and gave her alcohol. The victim told police she was ill and lost consciousness when he sexually assaulted her in his New Carrollton home. Everett later took her back to her dorm after the incident.

The second victim told police that in August 2015 when she was a student at Howard at 18-years-old, she met Everett at a party and agreed to go out with him after. He then picked her up from her dorm and gave her alcohol. She also said she lost consciousness when he sexually assaulted before driving her back to the university.

The two cases caught the attention of police after an anonymous letter was sent to the department in March 2018.

When police further investigated these incidents, they reviewed a 2005 case involving Everett and a 16-year-old girl who said she was assaulted at his home. Everett did the exact same thing by giving her alcohol and assaulting her before he took her back home in Virginia. In this case, Everett went further and physically assaulted the girl in his car. He was later charged by police in Virginia with that assault.

Everett is now charged with multiple charges in connection with all three sexual assaults.

Investigators believe that there may be more victims.

The Prince George’s County Police Department established a tip line regarding this suspect. If anyone has information on Julian Everett, they are asked to call 301-772-4915
