A 46-year-old man has been arrested in Falls Church in connection to a sexual assault that occurred in March.

Police say Carlos Guillermo Suarez Diaz of Falls Church approached a 17-year-old girl in the rear parking lot of 124 E. Broad Street on March 13 and touched her inappropriately. They said he asked the victim if he could take her picture before the assault, and she initially consented. While taking her picture, Diaz inappropriately touched her, and she told him to stop and then left.

The victim did not report the incident immediately, but later told a counselor, who then notified police.

Diaz has been charged with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery.
