SEVERN, Md. (WJZ) — An Anne Arundel County man is behind bars, charged with sexually abusing two teenage boys.
Jessica Kartalija has the latest on the investigation.
Brandon Sukeforth, 22, sits in a cell at the Baltimore County Detention Center charged with multiple sex offenses against two teens.
“One of the victims was 14 years old and his mother became suspicious when she found some communications that indicated her son had some kind of sexual activity with a man,” said Elise Armacost, Baltimore County Police Department.
That’s when police began investigating Sukeforth, who used the alias Brayden Clark on a Facebook page to contact his victims. He used the Facebook profile “Brayden Clark (Brandon)” and the e-mail address “email@example.com.”
“That investigation not only confirmed the sexual activity with this victim, but also revealed this suspect was having sexual activity with another victim, a 13-year-old,” Armacost said.
Sukeforth lived in Severn on the 8200-block of Quarterfield Road. At this point, it’s unclear where his victims lived.
“It’s tragic,” said a neighbor who asked not to be identified. “I think God has something special for those who harm children.”
“A concern to me because I have a disabled child who doesn’t talk so it would be a concern to me,” she continued. “I never know what could happen to him and being in the neighborhood, just moving to the neighborhood, it’s a definite concern.”
Police say Sukeforth lied to his victims, telling them he was 17 and 19 years old.
He’s now charged with sexual solicitation of a minor, perverted practice and second-, third- and fourth-degree sex offense.
Police say the teens were sexually abused in February and September of this year.
Police believe there may be other victims out there. They are urging anyone with information to please come forward and assist with this investigation. Call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
