Man Accused of Multiple Sexual Assaults in Northern Virginia: One Allegedly Occurred on College Campus

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

A Northern Virginia man has been accused of raping a woman at her business and attempting to sexually assault a student on a college campus, according to Fairfax County police.

Kevin Lopez-Altan, 24, from Annandale, allegedly broke into an Annandale business before it opened on Wednesday and held a 59-year-old woman captive for several hours. The victim was able to escape and call the police, but the attacker had already fled the scene. Detectives discovered that Lopez-Altan had tattoos that were recognized by a campus police officer who had been a Fairfax County sheriff’s deputy. This encounter led authorities to locate Lopez-Altan and arrest him at Heritage Center on Friday afternoon.

After developing Lopez-Altan as a suspect, detectives discovered that he was also under investigation by the Northern Virginia Community College Police Department for an attack involving a student the following night. The 20-year-old woman was able to resist her attacker with the help of a passerby. Police believe that if not apprehended, Lopez-Altan may have targeted more victims.

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.
