“Baltimore County suspect arrested on sexual abuse of a minor charges”

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office announces the arrest of Michael Vincent Bonczewski, a 38 year old from Baltimore County, on child sexual abuse charges.

In January, 2021, a victim came forward and reported to Carroll County Advocacy and Investigation Center Detectives that he had been the victim of sexual abuse from 2010 through 2012. He was 13 years old when the abuse began. It is believed that the abuse occurred between 150 to 200 separate times at several locations in Baltimore and Carroll County.

With the assistance of the Baltimore County Police Department, Bonczewski was arrested at his home on Wednesday, August 4th. He was taken to Carroll County Central Booking, where he was held without bond. He is charged with:

Sexual Abuse of a Minor, 3 counts
Continuing Course of Conduct with a Child, 3 counts
Sexual Solicitation of a Minor
Child Pornography
(All individuals are presumed innocent of the pending charges until proven guilty in a court of law)

At this time, there is one known victim. However, due to the number of youth organizations Bonczewski has been associated with over the years, detectives are concerned there may be more victims that have not yet come forward. The following is an approximate timeline of organizations Bonczewski has associated with based on what has been uncovered up to this point of the investigation.
