Michael David Brochu of Bowie was arrested by Prince George’s County Police on Aug. 27 and charged with third- and fourth- degree sex offenses and second-degree assault against a fourth minor victim, according to police. As of Aug. 30, Brochu remains in custody with the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections on charges stemming from this third arrest, said PGPD spokesperson Cpl. Maria McKinney.
