(Stow Police) On 08/08/17 agents of the United States Marshals Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Scott R. Brundage, age 49, of Garfield Heights, Ohio, based upon a warrant for multiple sex offenses involving seven female victims ages 10-15. The charges, four counts of rape (F1), nine counts of gross sexual imposition (F3,F4), two counts of sexual imposition (M3) and one count of corrupting another with drugs (F4), were the result of an investigation completed by the Stow Police Department. The latter charge resulted from inducing one victim to ingest illegal substances.
The investigation was initiated in January, 2017, when the youngest victim disclosed to her mother that Brundage, who at that time lived in their home in Stow, had been sexually assaulting her. Further investigation revealed female siblings had also been victimized. In March, 2017, another parent reported her daughters had also been sexually assaulted by Brundage on occasions when they stayed at the first victim's residence.
Following a lengthy investigation and testimony by a Stow Police Detective before the Summit County Grand Jury, a secret indictment was issued on August 2, 2017.
Brundage was arrested at his home and transported to the Summit County Jail pending arraignment on the charges. If convicted, he could face life in prison without parole on rape charges.
Scott R. Brundage has no criminal history.
