Man Charged with Sex Offenses from 20 Years Ago

Reston Police Station – A 48-year-old Winchester man has been charged with six felonies for sexual assaults that occurred between 1999 and 2001. Detectives began their investigation in May after a victim disclosed the unlawful sexual contact occurring in 2001. Detectives determined Rigoberto Garcia Nolasco resided in the 13300 block of Schwenger Place in Herndon where he provided piano lessons to the victim. He did not have a business associated with the piano lessons and provided lessons to other juveniles through community contacts.

During the course of investigation, detectives identified two additional victims. On Tuesday, detectives from our Major Crimes Bureau’s Sex Crimes Squad arrested Garcia Nolasco and charged him with indecent liberties with a minor, two counts of aggravated sexual assault and three counts of animate object sexual penetration. Garcia Nolasco was held at the Adult Detention Center without bond.

Garcia Nolasco moved to Maryland in the early 2000s, and detectives have not yet confirmed if he continued to provide piano lessons after moving.
