Man Accused of Grabbing Woman, Dragging Her Into Woods in Reston

A 33-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the abduction and attempted sexual assault of a woman in Reston, Virginia, Fairfax County police said. 

Dominique Ashley Childs, 33, was arrested Monday in Manassas after police received a tip. 

Earlier this month, a 22-year-old woman said she was walking in the 12000 block of North Shore Drive, when she was grabbed from behind by a man and dragged into the woods. The victim said a man tried to remove her clothing but left the area suddenly.

Childs has been charged with abduction with intent to defile. He is being held without bond.
