Victim assaulted in wooded area in Rockville

Rockville City police responded to a report of an assault in a wooded area south of King Farm early yesterday afternoon. The assault was reported in a wooded area along Piccard Drive at 12:55 PM, according to crime data. There is a forested stream valley that runs behind several office buildings along Piccard between King Farm and Gude Drive.


  1. There is also a hotel that MoCo Govt has converted to low income housing right across the street from assault location.

  2. I think that there was a carjacking on Congressional lane a few days ago.

  3. Trying to figure out the location. Is this the wooded area between Redland and Gude? I don't think there are any paths in that wooded area, so I would think the victim likely would have been pulled into it from an adjacent area. The only converted hotel-type property in that area I believe is the Flats at Shady Grove, which I believe is a privately owned apartment complex not public low income housing.
