A Kingstowne man has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman he met online at a townhome in the Manchester Crossing neighborhood.

Fairfax County police officers were called to the 6000 block of Alexander Avenue around 5 a.m. today (Monday) after getting a report of an adult woman who had been raped and “maliciously assaulted,” the department said in a news release.

Police say 22-year-old Yeudy Saul Chavez Sandoval met the victim online. When they agreed to meet in person, he “lured her into an apartment.”

“She was pushed down the stairs where she sustained significant injuries,” the Fairfax County Police Department said. “The suspect then sexually assaulted her. The victim was able to escape and call 911.”

The woman was transported to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

According to the FCPD, Sandoval had left the scene when officers arrived, but detectives identified him as the suspect and took him into custody “after thorough investigative efforts.”

Sandoval has been charged with rape, forcible sodomy, object sexual penetration and malicious wounding, police said. He is currently being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center without bond.
