Residence searched in alleged rape case

Unidentified woman says acts committed by boyfriend's father

By Candace Sipos -- csipos@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- A Stephens City man is under investigation after an unidentified woman told a Winchester police investigator that that man has committed over 30 counts of rape, forcible sodomy or object sexual penetration against her since 2009.

Frederick County Sheriff's Office deputies searched the residence of Pedro Steven Quinones Sr. at 119 Pittman Court in Stephens City on Jan. 5. They seized various electronic devices, such as a cell phone, computer, camera and AT&T sim card. They also took a handgun, several varieties of pills and a "green leafy substance".

The computer and media devices will be examined for sexual material, according to the affidavit filed with the search warrant Tuesday.

Frederick County Capt. John Heflin confirmed that Quinones has not been charged as the investigation is ongoing.

According to the document, Winchester police investigator Eric W. Varnau met with the woman Jan. 5, when she told him her history with Quinones. She has been in a dating relationship with his son for the past three years.

The female, now an adult, but a minor at the time of most of the alleged incidents, showed Varnau a ring she said Quinones had given to her in exchange for 10 sexual sessions.

She told Varnau that Quinones would always distract his son before the sexual encounters by telling him to go to the store, take a shower or clean a different section of the house. Then he would take the woman to his bedroom and lock the door, she said.

She added that almost all of the sexual contact occurred inside Quinones' residence, although he had sex with her once inside a truck in the parking lot of the McDonald's on Tasker Road in Stephens City.

The woman told Varnau that she didn't want to have sex with Quinones, but she didn't want to make him angry and he threatened to not allow her to date his son. Many times, she pleaded with Quinones to stop having sex with her but he wouldn't stop, she said.

In 2009, when the female was about 16, Quinones used a hand-held camera to record himself having sex with her, according to the affidavit. He asked her to let him record the encounters several times after that, but she refused, and she told him she would not watch the entire video.

On another occasion, Quinones provided the woman with marijuana and offered her a "muscle relaxer" before sex, she said. She said that she smoked the marijuana but refused the "muscle relaxer." Quinones, his son and the female have smoked marijuana inside the residence several times, she added, noting that Quinones keeps his marijuana, pills and drug paraphernalia inside one of his dresser drawers.

Quinones wanted the woman to record a statement saying that the sexual intercourse between her and him was consensual, but she refused.
