The 41-year-old victim suffered non life-threatening injuries when she was reportedly assaulted by an agency employee around 9 a.m. at 7601 Little River Turnpike.

The incident occurred after the victim was reportedly locked in a room and told to watch a video depicting sexually explicit acts. She fled the building after telling the 72-year-old perpetrator that she needed to use the restroom.

Choon Sik Lee of 7717 Lafayette Forrest Drive, Annandale has been charged with two counts of attempted forcible sodomy.
