Frederick Police Ask for Assistance Locating Felony Assault Suspect


FREDERICK, MD – At 1001 hours on December 19, 2018, the Frederick Police Department (FPD) received a report of a possible assault at the Super 8 at 20 Monocacy Blvd.  A caller there reported seeing a female who appeared to have been assaulted.  Officers arrived and located the adult, female victim, who confirmed she had been assaulted in a motel room.  Officers began searching and securing the building due to the possibility the suspect was armed and still on-scene. 

Additional support from FPD’s Special Response Team and Crisis Negotiation Team arrived on-scene due to the possibility of a barricade situation occurring.  After an entry and search of the room, and a search of other accessible areas in the building, officers determined the suspect was no longer at the motel. 

The suspect has been identified as Rendell Markeith Johnson, 24.  He will be charged with first degree assault, second degree assault, and offenses related to unlawful possession of a firearm. Mr. Johnson also has several open arrest warrants for unrelated matters. 

The Frederick Police Department is asking anyone with information about Mr. Johnson’s whereabouts or this incident to contact Detective David Dewees at 240-409-0280.  Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact the department by voicemail at 301-600-TIPS (8477), text message at 240-674-TIPS (8477), or by email fpdcrimetip@frederickmdpolice.org.
