Man Charged With Abduction at Reston Hotel

Fairfax County Police (Editor’s Note: This article was edited April 25, 2017 to remove the name of the suspect in this case. The charges of abduction and unlawful entry were dropped, records show.)

A man who was banned from a Reston hotel was arrested by Fairfax County Police on Saturday after trespassing and holding a woman against her will, Fairfax County Police said.

Police said the 36-year-old man, who lives at no fixed address, entered the hotel lobby about 9:56 p.m. and was denied a room due to a trespass ban placed by the property owner at Extended Stay America.

The man then walked through the hotel at 12190 Sunset Hills Road and triggered several fire alarms and knocked on various doors, police said.

Police say the man then entered a guest’s room without consent, where he held a woman against her will.

The suspect was charged with abduction with intent to defile, trespassing, unlawful entry and falsely summoning emergency services, said police.
