DC Man Charged With Sex Abuse Of Girl At Malcolm X Opportunity Center

WASHINGTON (AP) — Police in the nation's capital have arrested a 30-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting a child at a community center.

A police statement says Rakim Davis was taken into custody Saturday and charged with first-degree child sex abuse.

Citing a police report, news outlets report the girl was assaulted just outside the Malcolm X Opportunity Center on Oct. 12. The center is less than half a mile away from the Malcolm X Elementary School.

Authorities didn't immediately release further detail on the abuse or how Davis is connected to the child. It's unclear if he has a lawyer who can comment on his behalf.
