Matthew Maldonado, Nicholas Schultz accused in New Year's Eve rape
Two men are in police custody following accusations they committed a vicious crime.
Matthew Maldonado, 26, and Nicholas Schultz, 21, are accused of repeatedly raping a 20-year-old Fairfax woman as she fell in and out of consciousness in the parking garage of St. Matthews Cathedral on New Year's Eve.
According to court documents, the young woman, Maldonado and Schultz all know each other from the Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts School in Camps Springs where they trained.
Police said the woman bumped in the two men at a club in D.C. They offered to escort her to an instructor's home, because she was too drunk to drive.
But the men took her to the St. Matthew's Center parking garage instead, police explained, where surveillance cameras captured Maldonado raping the woman and Schultz joining.
After Maldonado left, police said, the tape shows Schultz raping her repeatedly. She told police he said at one point, "I am sorry. I am a sick bastard."
A roommate in the Clinton home where both men live said he was out of town when the alleged rape occurred.
"I have no idea. I know nothing," he added
Schultz told the court after he was arrested that he lives in a Jiu Jitsu fighter house.
"What I know is they have always been real nice to me, really good friend. I like them a lot," the roommate said.
Neighbors said police had the area blocked off the night Maldonado and Schultz were arrested.
"Swat team, riot van, one man in riot gear...," one neighbor said. "Well, I'm glad they caught then...," another neighbor added.
Detectives said the woman claimed she had been raped, but it wasn't until they saw the tape, that the extent of the allegations emerged.
They wrote of the alleged attack "She fell backwards...striking her head against the wall...later struck her head again...and noted she collapsed to the ground...several times...he head again hitting the ground."
At the end of the report, the police said the two suspects left the victim on the concrete. A passerby later heard her cries for help.
Maldonado and Schultz will appear in court Thursday.
