COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ) — A bizarre case involving sex assault and beer pong in Maryland. Police arrested a 38-year-old man they say targeted men who had too much to drink.

Mary Bubala has more.

Police say Joey Poindexter prowled college bars and sports events, looking for intoxicated young men to attack. They say he frequently went to beer pong events in D.C. and Maryland. Police say Poindexter also traveled to the National Beer Pong Tournament in Las Vegas, as well as to Dallas, Atlantic City and Salt Lake City, in search of young men who were so drunk, they were unable to defend themselves.

“The victims all stated that they are heterosexual and have never had a consensual sexual encounter with another man,” said Montgomery County Police Assistant Chief Russ Hamill.

The alleged attack that finally stopped him started last month in College Park at Looney’s Pub and ended at Poindexter’s home in Gaithersburg.

The victim says he drank beer and liquor with Poindexter and then everything is a fog but he knows he was sexually assaulted.

“Our victims become highly intoxicated or drugged—we are investigating that—and then he takes advantage of them,” said Hamill.

Police say they found photos of up to 10 other victims, all unconscious, on the suspect’s camera.

“It’s a horrific sexual assault and the fact that it’s a male doesn’t make it any less horrific,” he said.

They are asking other victims to come forward.

“We’re here to help you. Please trust in us. Please,” Hamill said.

After Poindexter’s arrest, several men did come forward. Police fear there could be dozens of victims across the country from the past 10 years. If you have any information, please call police.
