According to a report published at Fairfaxtimes.com, Prince William County police have arrested a 17-year-old boy in connection with an alleged rape last month. The incident allegedly occurred on March 28th in Manassas, when a 31-year-old woman was walking to a friend's residence. The report indicates that a man approached the victim, displayed a handgun, and led her to a secluded area where he raped her. The attacker fled the area on foot, and was described as wearing a puffy black jacket and a black and white bandana. According to authorities, the suspect's description matched that of an earlier armed robbery earlier that day at a local barbershop. The suspect's name has not been released, due to the fact that he is 17.
The allegations that this suspect is facing are extremely serious, and could seriously affect his life for years to come. Anyone accused of violent or sexually related crimes should contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to start building a defense. An attorney can assist you in mitigating any long term consequences you may be facing, and can ensure that your legal rights are protected.
