A man was arrested in Sterling Monday evening after allegedly abducting and assaulting a female, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident was one of several assaults reported in Loudoun County during the extended holiday weekend.

Around 7:11 p.m., the complainant told authorities she had been assaulted by a person whom she knew and who would not let her leave her residence in the 300 block of Argus Pl.

The suspect reportedly arrived unannounced and forcibly entered the residence when the victim opened the door.

Deputies later located the suspect — Zachary N. Curtis, 40, of Leesburg — and took him into custody.

Curtis was charged with assault and battery, abduction, violation of a protective order and destruction of property.

As of Tuesday afternoon, he is being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
