Police: Herndon woman abducted, raped in Prince William

A Herndon woman visiting an acquaintance in Prince William County was abducted and raped late Thursday, and police are continuing to look for her attacker, according to a Prince William police department news release.

A 31-year-old woman was walking in the area of Maplewood Drive and Peakwood Court in Manassas when an unknown man approached her, displayed a handgun, and forced her into the woods in a secluded area behind a townhome on nearby Vermont Place, police say. He then raped her, police say.

Police are looking for a black, 5-foot-9 man, of medium build, last seen wearing a black puffy winter jacket, dark gray jeans, and a black and white bandana.
