Sex assault suspect eludes police

Prince William County police are looking for a Woodbridge man accused of sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl.


Officers have been trying to serve Kwame Boateng, 43, with a warrant, but he knows they are looking for him. They said he lured the girl into his apartment Friday by telling her he had pictures of her. Once inside, she was assaulted.

Investigators said Mr. Boateng had assaulted the girl on several occasions since September 2004.

Police are offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to his arrest.

Missing boy, 3, returned home

A missing 3-year-old was found safe with a friend of the boy’s mother.

Officer Nicole Monroe said Kyren Parks‘ mother told officers that her friend Robert Douglas, 38, took the boy without her permission.

Officer Monroe said investigators were concerned because the mother and Mr. Douglas fought over the weekend and Mr. Douglas has a criminal history. State police issued an Amber Alert for Kyren.

Police said the boy had been seen last near his home in the 1600 block of Mountmore Court about 11 a.m. Sunday with Mr. Douglas.

Officer Monroe said Mr. Douglas returned to the home with the boy about 9:30 a.m. yesterday and was taken into custody.
