(Updated at 10:45 a.m. on 8/24/2022) Fairfax County police have arrested a 22-year-old man in connection with sexual assault of a woman in her apartment in Reston.

Anthony Agee, 22, was charged with intent to commit rape, abduction and the prevention of a 911 call in connection with the Sunday (Aug. 21) incident, Fairfax County Police Chief Kevin Davis announced in a press conference today (Tuesday).

According to police, the woman was watching television in her living room on the 2200 block of Lovedale Lane near South Lakes Drive when she woke up to a man there. The victim said the man raped her on the floor of her apartment at knifepoint.

She was hospitalized with injuries that are not life-threatening, according to Major Ed O’Carroll, commander of the Fairfax County Police Department’s major crimes bureau.

The suspect was arrested after a community search. Neighbors saw a man peeping out windows in the area before the attack.

Police officers also reviewed video footage from a previous incident on June 5 that showed the suspect in and around the area. 

Another resident told police of a handprint that was visible on glass doors in the area. Police ran the fingerprints through an expedited search and were able to pinpoint the suspect, according to O’Carroll. 

Davis said the investigation is “far from over,” referring to the suspect as a “vicious, callous criminal” and a “monster.” Police believe he may be connected to other incidents, and the suspect was known to the community. 

“We’re not done with him yet,” Davis said. “He’s off the street. That is the good news.”
