McLean Police District – Community tips led to the identification and arrest of a rape suspect, Patrick Craig Locke, 30, of Washington, D.C. Locke was arrested at 4 p.m. on Tuesday at the Metro Center Station.

The Fairfax County Police Department released surveillance footage on Oct. 1 of a rape and brandishing suspect from a hotel in the 8600 block of Westwood Center Drive in Vienna.
