Alexandria Police have arrested a man accused of committing sexual battery. On July 5, police were called to the 3400 block of Mount Vernon Avenue for the report of a man who had entered a business and rubbed his groin area against a 45 year-old female. The suspect fled the scene before officers arrived. Officers searched the area and located the suspect a short distance away. Jonathan Koonce, 31, of no fixed address, was charged with Sexual Battery and Providing False Information to Avoid Prosecution.
During the investigation, detectives determined that Koonce exposed himself earlier the same day at another business in the 3400 block of Mount Vernon Avenue and rubbed his genitals against two women. He was charged with two additional counts of Sexual Battery in that case.
The investigation continues and police believe Koonce may be responsible for other similar cases in the area. If you have any information about these cases or similar cases in the area, please call the Criminal Investigations Section at 703.746.6711.
