Police say witnesses stopped a bold rape attempt outside the HH Gregg in Woodbridge on Saturday.
The victim, a 19-year-old Woodbridge woman, was walking into the store in the 14500 block of Potomac Mills Road about 6:10 p.m. with a friend when a man with his pants down to his knees ran up to them.
“Once close enough, the man picked up the victim and took her to the ground where he then got on top of her,” Prince William County police spokesman Jonathan Perok said. “Multiple witnesses intervened to get the man off of the victim.”
The woman wasn’t injured.
Police arrived and arrested the attacker, identified as 20-year-old Jaguar Robert William-Palmer. He is charged with attempted rape and is being held without bond at the Prince William-Manassas regional jail.
