RESTON, Va. – Fairfax County Police announced Tuesday they have made an arrest in an abduction and attempted sexual assault that occurred in Reston, Virginia on August 14th.

Officials say 33-year-old Dominique Ashley Childs was arrested in Manassas on Monday after detectives received a tip. He is charged with abduction with intent to defile and is currently being held without bond in the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

The incident occurred earlier this month. Police say a 22-year-old woman was walking in the 12000 block of North Shore Drive when a man approached her from behind and dragged her into the woods. He then tried to remove the victim’s clothing and then left suddenly, according to officers.
