Glasgow – New Castle County Police have arrested 19-year-old Tomiere Harris in connection with multiple unlawful sexual contact incidents which occurred in Glasgow Park, according to M/Cpl. Heather Carter. He was taken into custody without incident in the 600 block of Cobble Creek Curve, near Glasgow Highschool.
Carter said during the months of October and November of 2016, New Castle County Police investigated the report of a 43-year-old female being inappropriately touched as she was walking in the parkland. In another incident, a female victim was using a portable bathroom in the park when the suspect opened the door and exposed himself to her, according to Carter. During the months of July and September 2017, police investigated two additional reports where a 59-year-old female and 43-year-old female were inappropriately touched as they walked in the parkland.
Throughout the course of the investigation, detectives developed Tomiere Harris as a possible suspect in the unlawful sexual contacts. Detectives obtained a search warrant for Tomiere Harris’ residence, which is located in the 700 block of Townsend Place in Wilmington, where detectives located evidence further implicating him in the crime, according to Carter.
Tomiere Harris was charged with four counts of third-degree unlawful sexual contact, sexual harassment and second-degree indecent exposure. He was arraigned and committed to the Howard Young Correctional Institute for failing to post a $4,200.00 cash only bail.
