An Annandale man is facing a litany of charges, including sexual assault, in connection with a weekend incident at the Wolf Trap Hotel in Vienna.
Police were called to the hotel at 430 Maple Avenue W. early this past Sunday morning “for a report of a sexual assault” in one of the hotel rooms.
More from this week’s Vienna police department crime report:
The officers found the room in disarray with furniture overturned and damage throughout the room. A woman advised the officers that an acquaintance picked her and her sister up from their home and transported them to the hotel where they used drugs, and she fell asleep. She woke up to find her sister had left the room and the acquaintance was angry, stating his money was missing. The acquaintance began destroying property throughout the room, assaulted the woman and prevented her from leaving. The assault was interrupted when an unknown person came to the room to investigate the noise.
MPO Shaw arrested the 29-year-old man from Guinea Road in Annandale, Virginia. He was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center where he was charged with Sexual Assault, Abduction, Simple Assault and Possession of Marijuana.
