FALLS CHURCH, Va. (WUSA9) - Falls Church Police arrested a man in connection with a sexual assault earlier this year.
Police say on March 13, Carlos Guillermo Suarez Diaz, 46, approached a 17-year-old woman on the parking lot of 124 E. Broad Street. Diaz was allegedly dressed as a woman and asked the victim if he could take her picture. According to authorities, the teen consented but as the pictures were taken she was touched inappropriately. The victim told him to stop and left the area.
Police add the victim did not initially report the incident and a counselor notified police later that month.
Diaz is charged with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery. His arraignment is scheduled for May 13. Falls Church Police say tips and video surveillance from businesses helped solve the case.
