An individual identified as Eric Thomas Myers was placed under arrest by the Criminal Investigation Division after he touched, assaulted, and refused to let a victim leave his residence, after an alleged photo shoot.

In January, 2013 the victim stated that she had exchanged a series of facebook messages, with Mr. Myers, in regards to being photographed. She made an agreement with Mr. Myers, who would pay her a sum of U.S. currency. The victim stated during the photo shoot she would be fully clothed.

The victim arrived at the suspect’s residence, located at 931 Cherokee Trail, Frederick Maryland, on January 21st, 2013. During the photo shoot Mr. Myers asked the victim to take off her clothes and she refused.
