Law enforcement officials have released the first mugshot of Aaron Hajjmilak Thomas after his arrest in New Haven Connecticut. The former Berryville resident has been charged with a rape in New Haven in 2007 and abducting three teenage girls at gunpoint in 2009 in Prince William County. DNA evidence collected also ties him to 17 other sexual assaults committed on the eastern seaboard.
The mugshot from his March 4th arrest was released by the Connecticut Department of Corrections on March 10th. Prince William County police also released a mug shot from an arrest in June of 2001 on domestic assault and battery charges. Police hope that the earlier photo may help other victims in the 14 year span identify Thomas as their assailant.
Thomas is currently being held in Connecticut on $1.5 million bond.
