RESTON, VA (WUSA9) - A Virginia man is being charged with abduction with intent to defile after police say he approached a woman from behind and dragged her into the woods and tried to remove her clothing.

On August 14, around 2:30 p.m., a woman was walking on the sidewalk in the 12000 block of Northshore Drive.

Police said 33-year-old Dominique Ashley Childs approached the 22-year-old woman from behind and dragged her into the woods. Once they were in the woods, Childs tried to remove the victim’s clothing, but suddenly left.

Childs was arrested on Monday in Manassas, Virginia after detectives received a tip. He is being held without bond in Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
