A Springfield-area teenager has been arrested on charges that he abducted a 5-year-old girl from her bed and then sexually assaulted her in a wooded area near her home, Fairfax County police said Thursday.
An intruder broke into a townhouse in the 7000 block of Brocton Court in Springfield after midnight on Aug. 27, went upstairs and took the girl from her bed, Fairfax County police have said. The girl’s parents and 1-year-old sibling were at home, police said. They said the parents did not realize that the girl had been abducted until she returned home about 4 a.m. and told them what had happened.
Appalling. This boy needs to be locked away. He will rape again if he isn’t secluded in prison. And he’ll probably do far, far worse. Incarceration is the only way to keep people safe from this early-starting predator.
