Website-Serious Crime

Loudoun County, VA (February 24, 2020): Detectives arrested a 30-year-old Sterling man Friday night after DNA evidence linked him to the sexual assault of a juvenile last September. 

The suspect, Fran S. Rossel Aramayo, offered the victim a ride to school on September 30, 2019 in the area of W. Laurel Avenue in Sterling. The teenage victim was familiar with the suspect and accepted the ride due to the rainy weather. As the suspect drove her to school he propositioned the victim, groped her, and sexually assaulted her. 

Following the assault the victim was dropped off at school and she reported the attack to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office later that same day.

Through the course of the investigation the suspect was located, and evidence was collected to include DNA as part of a search warrant. DNA evidence returned from the Virginia Department of Forensic Science lab positively connected the suspect to the sexual assault.

Rossel Aramayo was arrested Friday night and charged with Object Sexual Penetration and Sexual Battery. He remains held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.
