The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man who allegedly assaulted a girl walking home from school yesterday.
Detectives have released a composite sketch of the suspect and are asking for the public’s assistance to help identify a man captured on home surveillance video who was in the area at the time of the assault.
The victim said she was on a walking path near Wrightwood Place around 4 p.m. Jan. 3 when she saw a man who appeared to be jogging. He grabbed the girl and touched her inappropriately. The suspect fled when the victim screamed.
