ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- Fairfax County police say they've charged a man with abducting a girl waiting for a school bus and sexually assaulting her.

The 12-year-old girl was waiting for the bus at an apartment building on Janna Lee Avenue on Wednesday morning, when police say she was grabbed.

Police say the girl told them a man pulled her into an apartment and touched her inappropriately, but she managed to break free and ran to her bus. The girl did not require medical attention, but police and school officials were notified.

The girl gave investigators a description of the man and police say they've identified the suspect as 22-year-old Walter Yomar Gomez-Lemus. He is charged with abduction with intent to defile and aggravated sexual battery.
