A man who police say has no fixed address has been charged in the abduction and sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl who was walking to school.
Yesterday the 11-year-old who was walking to school alone, was kidnapped in Virginia and sexually assaulted. The man who allegedly abducted the child was arrested later, the county police said.
Police say the girl was walking to school in a suburban neighborhood, when a man approached her. The attacker grabbed her and implied that he had a weapon.
A 34-year-old woman saw the girl being attacked, and attempted to intervene and save the child, according to authorities.
The attacker struck the woman repeatedly, causing significant injury, the police said.
Soon others heard the commotion and tried to intervene. The man fled, taking the 11 year old girl with him to a secured area, where he sexually assaulted her, according to the police.
After the assault, the police said, the man released the girl and fled.
Meanwhile the 34 year old women had called authorities.
Likewise, the girl found an officer and reported the attack. Both the girl and the witness were taken to a hospital for treatment, police said.
Officers in the area on an unrelated investigation arrested Adam-Seth Nathaneal Walter, 36. He was identified by the cities and charged with being the attacker. A police release says Walter is a convicted violent felon. He’s charged with multiple offenses. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
