NORTHAMPTON COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) – An arrest has been made in a sexual assault investigation at a Northampton County campground.

A woman was sexually assaulted in the bath house near Cherrystone Family Campground’s general store in October. The suspect was reportedly wearing a Halloween mask at the time.

The suspect was described as a man in his early 20s standing 5’8” with a slim build, blond hair and acne, and a sketch was released in hopes someone might recognize him.

Monday, Northampton County Sheriff David Doughty, Jr. told WAVY.com deputies arrested Caleb Ryan Parks, 20, last week in Harrisonburg. He was attending some classes at a school at the time of his arrest.

Parks has been charged with object sexual penetration and two counts of strangulation. He is being held at the Eastern Shore Regional Jail.
