BALTIMORE — A police officer in Maryland has been arrested on child sex crimes charges.

The Baltimore County Police Department says 34-year-old LoQune Lee Brown turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest Wednesday.

A corporal with the Bladensburg Police Department in Prince George’s County, Brown was being held pending a bail review hearing.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Brown, who worked for the Bladensburg Police Department in Prince George’s County.

Baltimore County police said an investigation found that between July and November 2020, Brown sexually assaulted a juvenile on two separate occasions.
