School Rape Suspect Charged As Adult

SALISBURY — A Delmar teen is being charged as an adult this week after allegedly forcibly raping a Parkside High School student in an empty hallway during school hours on Monday.

According to the victim, around 8 a.m. on Monday, she was walking with the suspect, later identified as Jocori Marece Scarborough, 17, when he began to make sexual advances toward her. Scarborough then allegedly grabbed the victim by the arm and forced her to an area not captured on the school’s video surveillance system.

According to police reports, the victim repeatedly told Scarborough no, but the suspect continued to force her by grabbing her by the hips and dragging her down a hallway. Once in an area outside video surveillance scrutiny, Scarborough allegedly pulled up the victim’s skirt and removed her underwear. Despite her attempts to resist and continued pleadings of no, the suspect was able to control the victim and allegedly raped her. The incident occurred at a time when the students were supposed to be in class, according to police reports.

Scarborough has been charged as an adult with first-and second degree rape, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, false imprisonment and molesting another at school.

The Wicomico Bureau of Investigations is handling the case. Anyone with further information is urged to call 410-548-4898, or Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776.
