On August 23, the victim reported that she had been sexually assaulted.  SVID detectives began an investigation.

Detectives determined that the victim and Stewart, who the victim knew as “Clifton”, began talking via a dating application on August 22.  They arranged to meet at a public parking lot located in Olney.

In the evening of August 23, the victim and Stewart met at the parking lot.  Both the victim and Stewart exited their vehicles and Stewart offered to drive the victim to get food.  As Stewart drove he sexually and physically assaulted the victim.  He then returned to the parking lot where they had met and shoved the victim out of the vehicle.

Through investigation, Stewart was developed as a suspect.  A warrant was issued for Stewart’s arrest, charging him with second-degree rape, second-degree assault, and a fourth-degree sexual offense..  At approximately 9:15 yesterday morning (September 16), Stewart was arrested at his home.
