Man knowingly infects several women with HIV


A Maryland man was knowingly transferring HIV to women he met on dating apps.

The Frederick Police Department said 34-year-old Rudolph Smith, of Frederick, was taken into custody on Monday after a 21-month long investigation.

Authorities said they received a tip that Smith was actively having sexual relations with multiple women knowing that he was HIV positive.

Detectives said he was meeting the women on various dating websites and apps.

Fox News reports that Smith has been indicted on four counts each of assault in the first degree, reckless endangerment and knowledge transfer of HIV prohibited.

Detectives have identified and contacted several victims, but are urging anyone who may have had a sexual relationship with Smith around or after July 2017 to contact them.
