Man arrested after holding woman hostage in VA hotel room


RESTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- Fairfax County Police arrested a 36-year-old man who was denied a room at a hotel due to a trespass ban and then entered a guest's room and held her against her will, police said.

Carlton Vanlowe, 36, went into the lobby of the hotel located in the 12100 block of Sunset Hills Road on Saturday night, authorities said. Vanlowe was denied a room due to a previous trespass ban he had received from the property owner.

He walked through the hotel and turned on several fire alarms inside of the building and knocked on doors throughout the hotel. Vanlowe went into a guest's room without her permission and then held her against her will, police said.

Vanlowe was arrested and is being charged with abduction with intent to defile, trespassing, unlawful entry and falsely summoning emergency services, according to authorities.

“The holiday season is a time when we are largely out of our normal routines, which alone can be a stressor,” explains Dr. Sanjiv Saini of MD Dermatology, with locations in Edgewater, Glen Burnie and Lexington Park, Maryland. “Many people will find that they have skin issues that emerge or become worse during this period due to the added stress.”

Police say it happened around 6:10 p.m. at the intersection of Ox Road (Rt. 123) and Little Ox Road in Fairfax Station. Preliminary investigation determined that a 1994 Lexus being driven by an 80-year-old man was southbound on Ox Road and a 2007 freightliner truck was being driven northbound by a 42-year-old woman.

The driver of the Lexus attempted to make a left turn onto Little Ox Road and was struck by the truck, police said. The driver and passenger of the Lexus were both transported to a local hospital, where the passenger died.
