Police charged Jonathan Isiah Westinghouse, 22, of Wilkinson Rd., with one count of rape and one count of sodomy with a victim under the age of 13.

"Henrico Police Detectives received information that Jonathan Isiah Westinghouse was having an inappropriate relationship with a juvenile acquaintance/family friend," Henrico Police spokeswoman Lt. Linda Toney wrote in an email. "Mr. Westinghouse is known to frequent roller skating rinks in the area. If anyone has additional information regarding Mr. Westinghouse, please contact Henrico Police at 804-501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000."

Police said the incident that led to Westinghouse's arrest happened in a home off of Hilliard Road.

Police sources told CBS 6 there could be more alleged victims.

Sources also said that Westinghouse frequented the Roller Dome on Williamsburg Rd.

An employee at the roller skating rink was not able to comment regarding Westinghouse, and referred CBS 6 to the owners.

Crystal Turner lives by the Roller Dome. She said she believes she's seen Westinghouse near the area before.

"He would be walking back and forth and he would wear a black jacket and would just stop and stare at people," said Turner.
