    Arlington County Police have a suspect in custody following a sexual assault in the Clarendon Whole Foods.

    Around 2 p.m. Sunday, a female shopper bent down to get a bottle of wine, and a man placed his hand between her legs and on her genitals, police said. The man then laughed and left the scene.

    About four hours later, police found a suspect sleeping on a bench. They said he had several pornography magazines in his possession.

    Frank Alex Bouknight, 24, was arrested and charged with sexual battery.

    Authorities say he repeatedly masturbated in the police interview room.
