He was charged with abduction with intent to defile in connection with the Aug. 14 incident, and he is being held without bond at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

Police say that at about 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 14, a man came out of a wooded area on North Shore Drive across from the entrance the village center, approached a 22-year-old woman from behind and pulled her off the sidewalk into the woods. There, he attempted to remove her clothes, but fled before any sexual assault took place.

A sketch of the suspect was released to the public later that week.

According to Fairfax County General District Court records, Childs will face a judge Oct. 10 for a preliminary hearing.
