WASHINGTON – An employee of the Transportation and Security Administration has been arrested for sexually assaulting a woman in his Manassas neighborhood after flashing his badge and while wearing his uniform.

Prince William County police were called to the 10500 block of Winfield Loop to investigate a sexual assault that had occurred early Sunday morning.

The victim, a 37-year-old woman, told police she and a friend were in their car when they were approached by an unknown man who was wearing a uniform and displayed a badge.

The victim told police she stepped out of the car to speak to the suspect, Harold Glenn Rodman, when he sexually assaulted her.

The woman’s friend was in the car, unaware anything had happened, police say.

Rodman, 52, was arrested in connection with the incident.

During an investigation, police discovered Rodman was an employee of the TSA and had been wearing his uniform during the assault.
