September 29, 2004

An Annapolis man accused of having sex with a 12-year-old girl at his apartment several weeks ago was arrested and charged Monday with second-degree rape and a third-degree sex offense, Annapolis police said yesterday.

An arrest warrant for Abdul Aziz Diagne, 44, of Thom Court was issued Monday after detectives investigated claims by the girl's mother that her daughter was having sex with an adult, according to Officer Hal Dalton, a police spokesman.

Diagne, a taxi driver, became acquainted with the girl after giving her several rides to and from her grandmother's house late last month, Dalton said. The man is accused of having sex with the girl at his home around Aug. 31 after arranging for the girl to be dropped off there by another cabdriver.

The suspect is being held at the county detention center on $250,000 bond.
