A teenage boy was sexually assaulted by a man who picked him up outside a restaurant on Columbia Pike on April 11 and offered him work, Arlington County police said.
Miguel Angel Pinedo-Valdivia, 50, has been charged with attempted forcible sodomy, police said.
Police said the 17-year-old was outside a restaurant on Thursday afternoon when he was approached by a man who offered him a job. They said the teenager got into the man’s Mercedes sedan.
Police said the teen was driven to an unknown location in Maryland and sexually assaulted, then driven to an Arlington County apartment complex and assaulted again.
Arlington police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said the teenager willingly got into the car because he was under the impression it was work-related. Sternbeck said authorities believe there may be additional victims.
Anyone with information about the suspect or additional sexual assaults is asked to call police at 703-228-4208. They can also call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
