Man Accused of Raping Va. Girl He Met on MySpace

July 28, 2010

A Fairfax County man is accused of raping and stabbing a 17-year-old girl he met on MySpace. Twenty-seven-year-old Rony Herrera Deleon of Falls Church was arrested Monday.

The girl told police that she planned to meet Herrera for a meal and a movie Saturday morning. Instead, she said he took her to a townhouse in Annandale, where he attacked her.

A detective wrote in a search warrant affidavit that Herrera molested the girl, stabbed her several times with a folding knife, then dragged her to a staircase and raped her.

Police interviewed the teen at Inova Fairfax Hospital Saturday night and say she had injuries consistent with her statements.

Court records show police have obtained a DNA sample from Herrera. He is being held in the Fairfax jail without bond.
