A man suspected in a series of sexual assaults up and down the East Coast has been indicted in Virginia and could stand trial this summer.
A grand jury in Prince William County returned an indictment Tuesday charging Aaron Thomas with abducting three teenage trick-or-treaters on Halloween 2009 and raping two of them.
The indictment includes two counts of rape, three counts of abduction with intention to defile and three counts of use of a firearm during a commission of a felony, Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert said.
A trial is scheduled for July 31.
Thomas was arrested last year in Connecticut and had been held there on charges connected to a 2007 sexual assault. But Connecticut officials agreed to extradite him to Virginia to face charges there first.
