Washington D.C. resident Dykwon Perry Davis has been indicted by a multi-jurisdictional jury on two felony charges: abduction with intent to defile and attempted rape.

Davis is charged with the attempted abduction in the Potomac Yard neighborhood earlier this month. On Feb. 3, Davis allegedly attacked a woman who had just parked her car on the 2200 block of Main Line Blvd and attempted to pull her into an alley. Davis allegedly tried to remove the woman’s pants but she was able to fight him off.

The Alexandria Police Department (APD) — the lead investigative agency — said a suspect was arrested a few days later.

According to a release from the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney:

These charges will be tried before the Circuit Court for the City of Alexandria. The Abduction charge carries a potential maximum penalty of life in prison. The Attempted Rape charge carries a potential maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Davis is currently in the custody of the Washington, D.C., Department of Corrections, pending extradition to Virginia to face these charges. A trial date will be set after Davis is arraigned.

The D.C. Department of Corrections told ALXnow it does not release booking photographs to the press.
