On May 18th the Cumberland Police responded to a private residence located in Jane Frazier Village after the mother of a 9 year old victim reported that her son had been sexually assaulted. Officers learned that the victim had just disclosed to his mother that he had been approached a couple of weeks earlier by a subject while he was at a playground on the complex. The suspect pulled the victim’s pants down and proceeded to touch him inappropriately. The assistance of the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit (C3I) was requested. C3I Investigators interviewed the victim and several witnesses who had observed the suspect near the playground the day of the incident. As a result, they were able to positively identify the suspect as 18 year old Kevin Lawrence Jones, of Cumberland. 

C3I Investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Jones, charging him with 3rd Degree Sex Offense, 2nd Degree Assault, and Stalking.  Jones was arrested on 05/20/2105 by members of the C3I Warrant/Fugitive Unit. He was taken before a District Court Commissioner for an initial appearance. He is currently being held at the Allegany County Detention Center on $35,000.00 bond, pending his next court appearance.
