David Lee Foltz – Repeat Sex Offender

The man arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman in Falls Church on Wednesday night is a registered sex offender who was convicted of rape and sexual battery in two separate Fairfax County court cases.

Local investigators say David Lee Foltz, 40, is also a suspect in 11 other similar attacks in Fairfax County, Alexandria and Falls Church.

“We are definitely interested in questioning him,” Falls Church spokeswoman Nicole Gobbo said.

According to Fairfax County records, Foltz’s prior convictions for rape and sexual battery came in 1990. Virginia records show he was registered as a sex offender in the state in 1998.

Fairfax County police officers were patrolling the 600 block of Hillwood Avenue at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday when they saw Foltz allegedly assault a female victim from behind and drag her into the woods.

The officers detained him until Falls Church police arrived and charged him with abduction with intent to defile and sexual battery.

Foltz told an Arlington County judge Thursday that he did not understand the charges.

“All I did was tackle her,” he said.

Foltz was being held in Arlington County Jail on Thursday.

Eleven sexual assaults have occurred in the Fairfax-Alexandria area since August, the most recent of which occurred Tuesday when a 29-year-old Falls Church woman was assaulted while walking on Lee Highway in Falls Church.

Sarah Tofte of the Human Rights Watch says that 25% of all sex offenders
re-offend within 15 years.
