(June 23, 2017) Ocean City Police charged an 18-year-old man with rape and second-degree sex offense after he allegedly attacked a woman in a condominium bathroom Tuesday evening.

The victim reported the assault around 6:20 p.m., and was taken to Atlantic General Hospital by police for examination. While she was in the hospital, the woman told police that she was assaulted by Cameron G. Broaddus, of Coatesville, Maryland during a party at a condominium at 115th Street.

When the woman excused herself to use the bathroom, Broaddus followed her, according to the charging documents. He would not leave the bathroom, even though the woman told him repeatedly to leave.

As the woman sat down on the toilet, Broaddus allegedly pulled his pants down and approached her. When the woman pulled away, she hit the back of her head on the toilet seat.

At that point, Broaddus grabbed the victim’s head and forced her to have oral sex, the police report said. He also allegedly touched the woman inappropriately and attempted to kiss her.

Police said Broaddus then picked up the victim, pushed her against the sink and assaulted her, according to the police.

The victim said that she told him repeatedly to stop, but he did not listen. After the assault, she fell to the ground and cried while hearing her friend knock on the door. Eventually, her friend forced her way in the bathroom.

The friend said that she was concerned when the victim did not return from the bathroom after a few minutes. She got a mutual friend to unlock the bathroom door, but found it blocked by Broaddus.

When police interviewed Broaddus, he said that he was alone with the victim in the bathroom for 15 seconds and denied being there when the door was shut.

Nurses at AGH said that the woman sustained a knot on the back of her head, in addition to other injuries.

As of Wednesday, Broaddus was in jail awaiting a bail hearing.
