Roberto Carlos Flores Sibrian, 26, is charged with rape and aggravated sexual battery, authorities said. Flores Sibrian was arrested Thursday at a construction site on Horner Boulevard in Sanford, and is being held in the Lee County Jail pending extradition to Stafford, Virginia.
According to previously released information, a young woman was driving east on Kings Highway (State Route 3) between 2:45 and 3:15 that morning when her vehicle was struck by a dark-colored SUV. The woman hadn't seen the vehicle before the collision, authorities said, and the impact caused her to spin out of control and wind up on the shoulder of the road near Sherwood Forest Farm Road. Authorities said the woman was then forcibly removed from her vehicle and dragged to a nearby ditch, where she was sexually assaulted for approximately two hours. Prior to the collision, the woman was at a residence in Spotsylvania County and had made no stops after leaving that home.
Her attacker got into the SUV and continued east on Route 3 after the incident. The woman called 911 from her cell phone and police immediately shut down the road to investigate. The assailant left a shirt and DNA evidence behind.
