WINCHESTER — A man accused of badly beating a woman, a  child molestation suspect, a man accused of child pornography possession and three drivers accused of leading police on high-speed chases were among the people indicted by a Frederick County grand jury on June 10.

The domestic violence occurred at the home of Taylor Wayne Baker on Wardensville Grade in the county around 8 p.m. Feb. 10. The woman said she and Baker were watching television when he attacked her. She said he choked her and held her head down in a sink. When she tried to break free, she said he bit her hand and then threw her down and headbutted her about 10 times. Baker, 28, was charged with unlawful wounding and assault and battery of a family member.

The alleged molestation purportedly occurred April 20. A girl told staff at the elementary school she attends that Edy Antulio Pojoy-Guzman repeatedly touched her inappropriately. Police said Pojoy-Guzman, 45, of the 100 block of Obriens Circle, admitted to touching the girl. He was charged with aggravated sexual battery.

The suspect in the child porn case is David Ryan McCoy, 30, of the 100 block of Amelia Ave. in Stephens City. He is accused of child pornography possession, four counts of the second or subsequent offense of child pornography possession, reproduction of child pornography and four counts of the second or subsequent offense of reproduction. Gosnell said the investigation began after an algorithm alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children who contacted local authorities. Further details were unavailable.

The high-speed first pursuit began at the intersection of Airport Road and Front Royal Pike (U.S. 522) at 10:58 p.m. Sept. 16, according to police. A northbound driver on Front Royal Pike swerved into the oncoming traffic lane, clipped a traffic cone on the shoulder and stopped in the oncoming lane before fleeing. The driver, later identified by police as  Hope Danielle Self, swerved around cars and reached speeds of up to 120 mph on Interstate 81. Self, 21, of the 1800 block of Millwood Pike in Frederick County, was charged with eluding police.

The second pursuit began on I-81 near the Reliance Road exit in Middletown around 6:55 p.m. on Sept. 27 and reportedly involved a stolen car. Trooper Jackson S.P. Lowther said the northbound driver fled at over 100 mph and exited at exit 310 by state Route 37 and the McDonald's restaurant. The driver fled the vehicle and ran into the woods where he was caught with the help of a police dog. The driver was identified as Martin Thomas Strohmeier IV, 37, of the 200 block of Lord Fairfax Highway (U.S. 340). He was charged with motor vehicle theft and eluding police. In an unrelated incident, he was charged with possession of a weapon by a felon on April 27, 2020.

The third chase occurred on I-81 in the southbound lanes near exit 317 around 2:30 a.m. Jan. 9. When a county deputy attempted to pull the driver over for weaving, he said the driver first stopped, then fled at speeds of up to 120 mph before crashing into a guard rail at exit 313 by the Apple Blossom Mall. The driver fled on foot before being apprehended. He was identified as Marco Antonio Suarez Aguillon, 23, of the 200 block of East Street in Winchester. Aguillon was charged with eluding police.
