Police in Montgomery County are not investigating the accusations of attempted sexual assault that have been lodged against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, a police spokeswoman confirmed Monday.

“We don’t open an investigation unless a victim files a complaint with us and so far the alleged victim in this case has not done so,” Elsa Rand, a county police spokeswoman, told The Washington Times.

Christine Blasey Ford said she was at a party in Montgomery County with Judge Kavanaugh in the 1980s. She told The Washington Post in an interview that Judge Kavanaugh, who was then a high-school student, climbed on her and tried to forcibly undress her. Ms. Blasey, who was also a teenager at the time, said she ran out of the house when she escaped his grasp.

Also on Monday, a spokesman for the Montgomery County State’s Attorneys Office said no charges have been filed as a result of the accusations. The spokesman Ramon Korionoff referred all follow-up questions to the county police.

Although some states have statutes of limitations in rape cases, Maryland is not among them.
