OCEAN CITY, Md. (WMAR) - Ocean City Police have arrested a man wanted in connection to a rape and assault.
At about 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, officers responded to the area of 120th Street in reference to a disturbance.
Officers were confronted by a group of people who said that a man who was staying with a group had been involved in either a fight or an argument with several other people in that unit.
During the incident Jason Paul Mackulin, 31, of Littlestown PA, displayed a taser at the group of people. While officers were speaking to the group Mackulin came out of the unit and was detained by police.
Officers learned that Mackulin assaulted his girlfriend and her 14-year-old son. Police also determined that the original disturbance involving Mackulin may have been a result of him being involved in a sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl, not related to Mackulin, who was also staying in the unit.
Ocean City Police charged Mackulin with second degree rape, third and fourth degree sex offense and second degree assault involving the 15-year-old female.
Mackulin was also charged with second degree domestic assault of girlfriend and second degree assault of her 14-year-old son.
