Va. man charged with harassing teen while dressed as woman
A Herndon man was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor after he tried to persuade a 16-year-old boy to get into his car Sunday night while dressed in women's clothing, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
The boy was listening to music while sitting on a bench outside an extended-stay hotel on E. Severn Way in Sterling when he was approached by Jose H. Mejia-Ulloa, 41, around 8:30 p.m. according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
The confrontation ended when the teen's mother came outside and spoke to Mejia-Ulloa, who drove away, Troxell said.
The boy's mother then called police, describing Mejia-Ulloa a female driving a red Honda Civic, according to authorities.
A sheriff's deputy who responded to the call saw the Civic pull into a nearby parking lot and confronted Mejia-Ulloa, Troxell said.
Troxell declined to provide additional details of the deputy's conversation with Mejia-Ulloa, who was arrested and held at the Adult Detention Center on a $5,000 bond. He was expected to be released Monday, Troxell said.
