Local Man Arrested for Multiple Felony Charges in Rape and Sexual Assault Cases

Virginia Woman Held Captive and Raped Inside Her Own Business, Authorities Report – NBC4 Washington

A Northern Virginia man is facing multiple felony charges after being accused of raping a woman at her business and attempting to sexually assault a student on a college campus, Fairfax County police announced.

Kevin Lopez-Altan, 24, from Annandale, was arrested at Heritage Center on Friday afternoon following a previous encounter with the suspect that was recalled by a campus police officer who had been a Fairfax County sheriff’s deputy. The officer recognized Lopez-Altan’s identity based on tattoos and the unusual way he rubbed his fingers.

According to Chief Kevin Davis, Lopez-Altan showed up at an Annandale business before it opened on Wednesday and held a 59-year-old woman captive for several hours. He made several attempts to enter the business but successfully forced his way in to attack the victim. The victim managed to escape and call the police, but Lopez-Altan had already fled the scene, leaving behind evidence such as fingerprints.

Fairfax County detectives discovered that there was another incident involving Lopez-Altan that occurred the following night involving a student at Northern Virginia Community College. The 20-year-old woman was able to resist her attacker with the help of a passerby. Authorities believe that Lopez-Altan may have targeted more victims if not apprehended.

Lopez-Altan faces multiple felony charges including rape, forcible sodomy, and abduction with intent to defile. He is currently in custody without bond while police are concerned that there may be other victims who have not come forward.
