Montgomery Co. man arrested at Dulles on felony child molestation charges

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a Montgomery County, Maryland, man at Dulles International Airport on felony child molestation charges.

Giovanni Di Angelo Reumante, 31, of Takoma Park, was arrested Tuesday after arriving on a flight from the Dominican Republic. He was wanted by Montgomery County police.

Montgomery County Police said Reumante is suspected of sexually assaulting a former student at Northwood High School. Reumante had been a track coach since 2013, police said, and the now-adult victim was on the track team.

Officials said in a statement Thursday that, during the course of their investigation into Reumante, they found that he “allegedly engaged in sexual contact with at least one student during and after school hours.”

Police said they are concerned Reumante might have targeted additional students, and encouraged anyone with additional information to contact Montgomery County Police Special Victims Investigations Division at 240-773-5400.

Reumante’s arrest is one of two by CBP officers in one week for felony child sex assault and molestation charges, a CBP news release said.

On Dec. 24, CBP officers at Dulles arrested Sir Chuku Maurice Ngare, 44, of Georgia, at the departure gate for a flight to Germany. There had been a warrant on Ngare requested by the Cobb County, Georgia, sheriff’s office filed on Nov. 24.

The men have been turned over to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police to initiate extradition proceedings.
