Alberto Figueiredo, 73, of Fairfax, was arrested at his home Thursday night.

According to authorities, a second victim told their parents about the alleged assault earlier in February. The assault itself, according to court documents, happened in September 2019.

Figueiredo is being held without bond at the Adult Detention Center.
