The suspect, 24-year-old Ramon Goodwin, works at the Las Vegas Restaurant in the 6100 block of Richmond Highway in the Alexandria area and has arrest powers, police said. The alleged victim, a 36-year-old Arlington woman, was involved in a dispute at about 1:25 a.m. Monday when the suspect placed her in custody and put her in his car, police said. The owner of the restaurant, Tomas Perez, said the woman had been fighting with her boyfriend.
The woman claimed that while Goodwin was taking her to a magistrate’s office, he pulled over near Lockheed Boulevard and Fairchild Drive, sexually assaulted her and then let her out of the car, police said.
The woman walked around the 7300 block of Fairchild Drive lost and called for help on her cell phone, according to authorities. Police found her and took her to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries
Perez said that Goodwin is an employee of the United Protective Services firm, which provides security at the restaurant, and was not on duty at the time but had gone to the club after working security at another location. Perez said that about 30 minutes after leaving with the woman, Goodwin returned to the club and said he had let the woman out of his car because she pleaded with him not to take her in.
Goodwin was arrested Thursday.
