Colin Sime Black, 33, of Rockville was charged with two counts of second-degree sexual offense and one count of second-degree assault. Both female victims were 18 years of age or older and were not students at Einstein, according to Montgomery County Police Spokesperson Sgt. Rebecca Innocenti.

Police would not disclose the names, ages or residential information of either of the victims.

Police were already investigating allegations from one victim who reported Black for sexual assault while on a date with him on March 24 when a second woman filed a second complaint on Sept. 15. The second victim also accused Black of sexual assault that occurred during a date with him on Dec. 31, 2016.

According to details from a Montgomery County Police press release on Oct. 19, each woman willingly went to Black’s residence in Rockville and had consensual sex with Black while on a date. However, afterwards in both cases, the women said Black forced sodomy on them.  

According to police, the two victims do not know each other and the victim who reported the offense in September did not know of any ongoing investigation of Black.

Black was transported to the Central Processing Unit. Police could not provide information about a bond hearing at the time of publication.

The Montgomery County Police Special Victims Investigations Division asks anyone who believes he or she may have been victimized by Black to call them at 240-773-5400.
