Carney man charged with rape, sex offenses

CARNEY, MD—Detectives are searching for additional victims after charging a Carney man with numerous sexual offenses, including second-degree rape.

Albert Chang Peal, 52, of the 9000-block of Naygall Road (21234), was arrested on a warrant Tuesday after a lengthy investigation.

The charges, including various degrees of rape, sex offense, and videoing without permission, stemmed from an incident reported on March 5th. Authorities believe that there are additional women who have been victimized by Peal, and they hope those women will reach out to detectives with information.

The victim in this case was acquainted with Peal, as she was an employee at an establishment he frequents. Peal offered to drive the victim home after she’d been drinking at a local nightclub. Instead, he drove her to his home where he took advantage of her level of intoxication and recorded the incident without the victim’s knowledge. The victim later reported the incident to police.

The investigation led to the discovery of a second victim that detectives contacted on April 2nd. This woman was also sexually assaulted by Peal under a similar set of circumstances, but had not reported the incident.

Peal has been charged with two counts of second-degree rape, two counts of third-degree sex offense, two counts of fourth-degree sex offense, and other related charges.

Initially held on no bail status, Peal was released on Wednesday on his own recognizance following a bail review hearing.
