The Prince George’s County Police Department arrested a Glenarden man for child sexual abuse and producing child pornography. The suspect is 22-year-old Deonte Carraway of the 7900 block of Glenarden Parkway. The preliminary investigation reveals the suspect targeted victims and videotaped sexual acts between minors during the school day at Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary School in Glenarden. Detectives believe sex abuse and/or child pornography was also produced at the Glenarden Municipal Center, Theresa Banks Memorial Aquatic Center as well as in private homes.

Carraway was a paid assistant at the elementary school during the 2014-2015 school year. He was a volunteer teacher’s assistant during the current school year. Carraway was also the director for the Glenarden Voices of Youth Choir.

On February 4, 2016, at 7:00 pm, a victim’s relative called police after discovering a nude photo on the child’s cell phone. That photo had been electronically sent to Carraway through the “Kik” messenger app. On February 5th, Prince George’s County Police detectives interviewed and arrested Carraway. Throughout the weekend, detectives began unravelling what is turning into a wide-ranging investigation. Preliminarily, detectives have identified at least 10 known victims ranging in age from 9-13. Detectives so far have uncovered approximately 40 videos showing the young victims performing sexual acts on each other or alone at the direction of Carraway. They also believe Carraway sexually abused some of the victims.

Carraway is charged with 10 counts of felony child pornography, sexual abuse of a minor and second degree sexual offense. Additional charges are likely. Carraway has admitted his involvement in the manufacturing and production of child pornography. He’s in the custody of the Department of Corrections on a one-million-dollar bond. The Prince George’s County Police Department is working closely with Dr. Kevin Maxwell, the Superintendent of the Prince George’s County Public Schools System, regarding this ongoing investigation.

If you’re concerned a child has been a victim, please call our Child and Vulnerable Adult Abuse Unit at 301-772-4930. We anticipate this investigation will last several months. As significant updates occur, we will inform our community.

        Keeping it real keeps it real ignorant and has no compassion for the victims. Back to the subject and I’m keeping it real…God bless these children and parents. Our prayers are with all of you!

        • Keepin It Real on February 9, 2016 at 9:52 pm

          Never said anything about the victims. And “praying” isn’t keeping it real, it’s doing nothing and making yourself feel good about it.

          • Yo mama on February 11, 2016 at 7:22 am

            What’s wrong with making yourself feel good?

          • Keepin It Real on February 11, 2016 at 10:48 am

            Nothing, as long as the aim isn’t to help someone else. Then making yourself feel good is useless. We’re not splitting atoms here.

    This is sick, and a disgrace. I feel sorry for the innocent victims who were effected by this individual. I pray for the accuser and the victims and I pray that the suspect ask God for forgiveness of this degrading act that you have done. Now you must face your consequences that lies ahead of you.

    • Keepin It Real on February 9, 2016 at 6:03 pm

      I pray that God should have stopped this from happening in the first place. Oh wait, he just watches it happens then punishes later. Unless that person repents. Then all is forgiven. So many loopholes to choose from!

    This young man or better yet pervert use to go to job corp. Woodland and you can never spot people like this by looking at them. I am not God but I hope and pray he gets the wrath of God and I really hate when people like this hide in church or around church. It’s so many of them in and around church. May God have mercy on his soul. I also pray that all the victims get the help they desperately need.
