Fairfax County police are searching for a man suspected of raping a woman at the Quarry Inn Motel just west of Falls Church City.

The man allegedly arranged to meet the woman at the motel (7179 Lee Highway) last Saturday (Sept. 16) at 6:40 p.m., according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

“When she opened the door, the suspect displayed a knife and threatened the victim. The suspect then sexually assaulted her,” the FCPD said in a news release today. “The victim was able to escape the room and call 911.”

Based on surveillance footage, police believe the suspect is a man in his 20s. He’s described as thin with scars or acne on his face.

The FCPD says anyone with information can contact its detectives at 703-246-7800, option 3. The department also accepts anonymous tips through Crime Solvers by phone (866-411-8477) and online.

As of June, the FCPD had recorded 192 forcible sex offenses in 2023, according to a mid-year crime report released earlier this month. The report found that shoplifting and assaults had noticeably increased from the previous year.
