Fair Oaks Man Charged with Rape

News Brief

<bt>A Fair Oaks man is facing a possible five years to life in prison after being arrested and charged with rape. He is Diego Javier Santiago Blengio, 31, of Glen Aden Road in Fairfax. He's currently being held without bond in the Adult Detention Center.

Fairfax County police say that on Monday, May 19, Blengio's ex-girlfriend, 29, reported that he'd sexually assaulted her, around 5:45 p.m., in his home. Blengio and the woman have a child together, and the alleged victim was temporarily staying with him while waiting to make other living arrangements.

According to police, Blengio came home from work and, after they became involved in a verbal argument, he reportedly sexually assaulted the woman. She was able to get away and call 911 for help; police officers responded to the home, where they took Blengio into custody.

Blengio was then taken to the Fair Oaks District Station and interviewed by detectives before being taken to jail. Police charged him with rape and also served him with an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on an April charge of domestic assault. His next court date is June 11.
