Fairfax County police have charged Alberto Figueiredo, 73, of Fairfax, with object sexual penetration against a developmentally disabled adult. Detectives from the Major Crimes Bureau’s Sex Crimes Squad began their investigation in late January when the victim disclosed the alleged assault to her parents.
According to police, she was an employee at the Wildflour bakery in Chantilly, where Figueiredo is also employed as the general manager. The bakery routinely hires individuals with developmental disabilities, and Figueiredo has been employed there for more than a decade.
After a thorough investigation, detectives arrested Figueiredo last Thursday, Jan. 30. He was then held without bond in the Adult Detention Center. Meanwhile, victim specialists from the Police Department’s Major Crimes Bureau’s Victim Services Division are making sure the alleged victim is receiving the appropriate resources and assistance.
In addition, detectives are asking anyone who has information or may have had inappropriate contact with Figueiredo to call Major Crimes Bureau detectives at 703-246-7800, option 3.
