A teen was arrested this weekend for forcing his way into a Chantilly woman’s home and allegedly attempting to sexually assault her.

Officers were initially called to the 14600 block of Northwest Place in the Meadows of Chantilly neighborhood at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday (Dec. 23) after getting a 911 hang-up call, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

“An officer from the Sully Police District found the distraught homeowner being followed by a male suspect inside the victim’s home, who was claiming to be her grandson,” the FCPD said in a news release today (Wednesday). “The victim disputed the claim and the officer attempted to detain the suspect.”

The teen attempted to run away but was “quickly” taken into custody by the officer, police said.

Based on a preliminary investigation, detectives with the department’s Major Crimes Bureau believe the teen knocked and tried to force his way inside the house after the woman answered the door.

“The victim attempted to call 911 but was assaulted by the suspect, preventing her from relaying information,” the FCPD said. “The suspect forced the victim to a bedroom and his further assault was stopped when officers arrived.”

The teen has charges of burglary with the intent to rape, abduction with the intent to defile, prevention of a 911 call, and assault and battery, according to the police department.
