CENTREVILLE, VA – Patrol officers from the Sully District Station were called to a residence in the 14400 block of Woodmere Court for a report of an unlawful entry on Tuesday, April 5. Around 11:21 a.m., the 77-year-old victim’s son reported that a man entered the residence through the front door which was closed but unsecured. The victim later sought medical attention and reported that a sexual assault had also occurred. Further investigation revealed that the suspect had engaged the victim in conversation and then sexually assaulted her. The suspect also took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled.

After an extensive investigation, detectives from the Major Crimes Division were able to identify and apprehend a suspect. Malcolm Raheem Hall, 28, of Centreville, was arrested on April 14 around 8:30 p.m. He was taken into custody and transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center. He was charged with attempted rape, sodomy and two counts of animate object penetration and held on no bond.

Once detectives were made aware of the alleged sexual assault, they worked expediently to process the scene and follow up on all potential leads. They went out into the community to distribute canvass flyers and engage local residents directly in an effort to develop information. Additionally, officers from the Sully District increased foot and bike patrols to identify possible suspects and reassure the safety of the community.

Hall was a seasonal (part-time) Fairfax County Park Authority employee at the Cub Run RECenter in Chantilly and has been employed there since September 2015. He has been terminated pending prosecution results.
