Detectives from our Sexual Assault Unit are seeking help from our community in locating a man wanted in connection with a rape investigation. The suspect is 44-year-old Richard Cedric Taylor. His last known address is the 3900 block of 28th Avenue in Temple Hills.
 
On June 6, 1999, at about 6:50 pm, the preliminary investigation reveals the then 15-year-old victim was socializing with mutual friends and Taylor who she did not know. Taylor offered to give the victim a ride home. Instead of taking her home, the investigation reveals he stopped at an empty apartment on Cindy Lane in Capitol Heights. While inside that apartment, the suspect assaulted and raped the victim.
 
On September 8th, a DNA hit linked the suspect to the crime. Detectives obtained a warrant for his arrest, however have been unable to find Taylor. The suspect faces charges of second degree rape along with first and second degree assault
