A grand jury indicted Daniel Edward Wright, 40, of Fredericksburg on four charges Monday, June 22 in connection with the rape of an underage female near Kidds Store, said Investigator David Wells of the Fluvanna County sheriff’s office.
Wright was indicted on four felony charges: one count of rape by force/helplessness, one count of forcible sodomy, one count of aggravated sexual battery, and one count of breaking and entering with the intent to commit rape, said Wells.
The attack occurred on June 10 at 10:17 p.m. on the 4380 block of West River Road.
Wright is not currently in custody. The sheriff’s office is waiting for the capias, or the order to take Wright into custody. “The sooner we can get him in custody, the better,” said Wells. His office is already in contact with authorities in Fredericksburg and Stafford.
“The victim and the offender knew each other,” Wells said, explaining that he did not believe the attack was random and that Fluvanna residents likely do not need to fear.
Wright’s hearing is set for July 10.
