Abduction Suspect May Have Attacked Another Woman

Arlington police have revealed new details about the case of the Marine charged with abducting a woman and suspected of brutally raping another woman last month.

Jorge “George” Torrez, a 21-year-old Marine stationed at Fort Myer’s Henderson Hall, was arrested over the weekend and charged in the Feb. 10 attempted abduction of a woman from the 1700 block of N. Quincy Street.

Torrez is also suspected in the abduction, sexual assault and near-fatal beating of a woman from N. Wakefield Street in Ballston early Saturday morning, according to police.

Now police are suggesting that Torrez might have been involved in an assault that occurred just an hour before Saturday’s alleged abduction. The assault occurred in the 4500 block of N. 4th Street at 3:00 a.m., according to police. That’s less than a mile from where the Ballston abduction took place, at 4:00 a.m.

Police say a man followed a woman up to her house, forced her inside, then used a stun gun on her. The woman yelled, waking up her roommate, and the suspect fled, according to investigators. Police say the assault is “believed to be connected” to Torrez.
