‘Good Samaritan’ aids police in arrest of Springfield sexual assault suspect

A man is under arrest after police in Fairfax County, Virginia, said a “good Samaritan” helped them capture the suspect following the sexual assault of a teenage girl in Springfield.

The Fairfax County Police Department said the assault took place Thursday night, in the in the 7000 block of Backlick Court.

Officers responded at approximately 7 p.m. and took 25-year-old Arjun Dhimal into custody, according to police.

Police said detectives believe Dhimal approached the teenager on a neighborhood sidewalk and sexually assaulted her, throwing her cell phone to the ground as she tried to call 911.

A nearby homeowner, who police call a “good Samaritan,” helped them place Dhimal in custody, according to police.

Dhimal was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and charged with abduction with intent to defile, attempted rape and preventing the summoning of law enforcement.

He is being held without bond.

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident or who may have witnessed it to contact them at 703-246-7800, option 3. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers at 866-411-8477.

Cheaper parking for VRE riders coming to Northern Va. Metro station

Virginia Railway Express riders who park at Metro’s Franconia-Springfield station in Northern Virginia will see their daily parking bill cut nearly in half.

Under a deal with Metro, VRE commuters using multi-ride tickets can now park for $4.95 a day — the same rate as regular Metro riders. Previously, VRE commuters were charged the standard non-Metro rate of $8.95 a day.

Only VRE riders who use multiday passes — monthly, 5-day or 10-ride passes — are eligible for the reduced parking fees. They must sign up through the VRE mobile app and be approved by VRE.

Riders who are eligible for reduced parking will receive what’s known as a non-rider SmarTrip card to pay for parking in addition to a VRE rider parking pass for their vehicle.

The deal to offer VRE riders reduced parking at Franconia-Springfield has been in negotiations for more than a year.

With more than 5,000 parking spaces, Franconia-Springfield’s is one of Metro’s largest parking lots.
