HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC)—A 22-year-old Henrico man known to frequent local roller skating rinks has been charged with sodomizing a 10-year-old girl.
22-year-old Jonathan Westinghouse was arrested Monday after
investigators received information that he had an inappropriate relationship
with a young girl.
Officers tell 8News the rape occurred at a home in the
county and Westinghouse is known to visit skating rinks in the area.
"If someone has been to a skating facility here in the area
and they recognize this person, we are asking that they please give us a call,"
said Henrico Police Lt. Linda Toney.
None of Westinghouse's neighbors wanted to go on camera but
tell us they are stunned.
One reports Westinghouse is a quiet and nice guy.
Police say his arrest gives parents an opportunity to talk
with their children about sexual abuse.
"Make sure you're speaking to them about what appropriate
relationships are and what inappropriate relationships are," said Toney.
Westinghouse is charged with one felony count of rape and
one felony count of sodomy with a victim under the age of 13.
He's expected in court in April.
