Police in Arlington, Virginia arrested a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman on Friday night.

Arlington County police said a woman who was part of a cleaner was working in a building on Wilson Boulevard in the Ballston district before 9:45 am on Tuesday. She was cleaning the bathroom when the man requested the use of the bathroom.

As she tried to leave, the man blocked her path, hit her, and tried to push her into the stall. She resisted and asked for help, leaving the suspect.

However, 30 minutes later, police say the suspect returned and slapped the woman again, grabbing her neck and trying to push her into the closet.

When the victim resisted and asked for help, he left again and did not come back.

The victim contacted police but was unable to find the suspect when he arrived.

On Friday, police were called to the same Arlington block on Wilson Boulevard and found a man who matched the explanation given to them by the victims.

The man was identified as a 30-year-old Demetrius Spencer-Coates. He was charged with kidnapping for corruption and sexual assault.

He is not detained.
