Howard County police have charged an employee of the Glenwood Country Day School with sexual abuse of a minor. Dameon Patterson, 31, of Elkridge, is facing multiple counts of sex offenses involving contact with an 11-year-old child. He has worked in the before- and after-school programs and summer camps for approximately two years.
The victim in this case disclosed the abuse last week to a friend who notified a trusted adult. The adult contacted police and detectives launched an investigation, which led to Patterson’s arrest late yesterday.
The child reported that the abuse occurred over a period of two years, with the last incident occurring in the summer of 2023.
Detectives are asking anyone with information, including any other children who may have been victimized by Patterson, to contact police at 410-313-STOP or [email protected]. Investigators were advised that the facility ceased operation on Jan. 5 due to a state licensing violation.
