A man is facing charges after exposing himself to a woman, then robbing her of her cell phone which she used to capture the incident. It happened shortly after 8 a.m. Friday morning near the intersection of Lee Highway and Graham Road in the Falls Church area of Fairfax County. Donnell Rojas, a 25-year-old Washington, D.C. resident, appeared from a nearby wooded area and exposed himself to a woman waiting at the bus stop. She photographed him for the purpose of reporting the incident to us, but Rojas then attacked her to take her phone before leaving the scene. Witnesses assisted the victim and directed officers to both Rojas and the woman’s cell phone, which he had thrown nearby.
Rojas was arrested and taken to the Adult Detention Center where he was charged with robbery and indecent exposure. Since his arrest, he has also been charged with stalking and sexual battery in connection with a similar case reported in the same area last month. He is being held without bond.
Detectives are looking into the possibility Rojas may be responsible for other incidents beyond Fairfax County, into Maryland and Washington, D.C. They are asking for anyone with information to contact them at 703-691-2131.
