During the extensive investigation, detectives from the Special Victims Bureau and Violent Crimes Bureau were able to identify the suspect involved in the abduction that occurred in the 14200 block of Essex Drive in Woodbridge in the morning hours of October 9.

Members of the Department’s Forensics Services Section were able to link the accused, identified as Adam-Seth Walter, to the incident from evidence recovered from the scene.

“During the encounter, the accused repeatedly struck the witness, causing significant injuries before forcing her and the juvenile victim into the residence,” said police spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Perok.

When the accused left the residence, the witness immediately called police to report the incident. The accused took the victim to an address on Cumberland Dr where he sexually assaulted her. After the encounter, the accused released the victim and fled on foot.

Responding officers learned of the juvenile victim from the witness and began checking the area.
