Serial Sex Offender Wanted for Sexual Battery on Metro in Va. Caught in DC for displaying shortcomings

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Metro Transit Police reported that on Sept. 8, 2017, they arrested Nathaniel Tyrone Ford, 29, of Southeast D.C., on Virginia charges of sexual battery and public masturbation.

Attention Metro Customers:

Unlike many other transit systems, Metro currently does not have the ability to bar individuals who commit repeat offenses.

Ford’s arrest stems from an incident on June 5, 2017, in which he allegedly committed sexual battery against an adult female victim aboard a train in the area of West Falls Church Station. The victim identified the suspect as Ford and recognized him from being previously victimized in a similar incident that occurred in January 2016.

Police say that Ford has a criminal history that includes more than two dozen prior arrests for indecent exposure, many of which occurred on Metro. In addition, Ford has been stopped 11 times for fare evasion (failure to pay fare) on Metro. Unlike many other transit systems, Metro currently does not have the ability to bar individuals who commit repeat offenses. Currently, the only way to keep an individual off Metro is through a court-issued stay away order.

Ford was arrested by MTPD in Washington, DC. He is currently being held pending extradition to Fairfax County.

Ford entered into a plea deal with Prince Georges County States Attorney Angela Alsobrooks on Aug. 14, 2017, on a charge in District Court for indecent exposure. With a taxpayer provided free attorney, working a deal with Alsobrooks, Ford was back onto Metro trains for his next adventure. THE DEAL: No fine and a jail term of two years and 365 days with two years and 332 days suspended and credit given for time served of 33 days. Charged with a fourth-degree sex offense and second-degree assault on Nov. 27, 2016, Alsobrooks dropped both charges on Aug. 14, 2017.
