Suspected ‘Potomac River Rapist’ Said To Be Back in D.C.

Sources told WJLA that a man accused of being the “Potomac River Rapist” is back in Washington, D.C., and might appear in court on Thursday afternoon.

Authorities have said “Potomac River Rapist” is accused of attacking several women in Washington and Montgomery County in the 1990s, killing one of them.

Police announced last week that Giles Warrick, 60, who is thought to be the man who committed the crimes, was arrested in South Carolina. [WJLA]

Climate activists go on daylong hunger strike

Local members of a nationwide climate advocacy group fasted on Tuesday to protest what they described as county inaction on climate change.

The Montgomery County Climate Mobilization group gathered at the Council Office Building in Rockville to attract attention from local legislators.

Members of the same group were arrested in October after blocking the entrance to the Executive Office Building as part of another climate demonstration. [WDVM]

The event will be held at the Activity Center at Bohrer Park on South Frederick Avenue.
