Investigators say the 41-year-old Falls Church woman was seeking employment help when she was assaulted by Choon Sik Lee, of Annandale, around 9 a.m. on July 7. She suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The victim was reportedly locked in a room and told to watch a sexually explicit video, police say. She later fled the building, located at 7601 Little River Turnpike, after saying she had to use the bathroom.

Sik Lee is charged with two counts of attempted forcible sodomy.

The suspect’s wife, Mioung Lee, says if women watched pornography they probably wanted to. But she doubts it ever happened, she told ABC7’s Stephen Tschida in broken English.

After an investigation, detectives uncovered a similar incident that allegedly took place on May 19, when a 28-year-old Fairfax woman was injured.

Those who work in this building say a steady stream of people looking for jobs come to the World Employment Agency. They say the majority is Hispanic. Lee speaks Spanish.

Police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell said the victim called police right away.

Investigators believe there may be more women who have been victims of similar acts by the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call 703-246-7818.
