The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two suspicious incidents reported in the Brambleton area during the past week.
On Friday, Oct. 6, a resident reported that she was approached twice by a woman who asked multiple times about her children. The suspect then followed her as she walked to sit down to feed her child. The suspect asked the names of the children and whether the mother needed a nanny. The suspect attempted to reach toward the complainant’s son but the complainant stopped her.
During the encounter, the woman walked back and forth towards a man who was across the park. The two were never seen conversing but the complainant believed they were together, according to the report.
The second incident was happened Monday at approximately 12:30 p.m. near Oglethorpe Court where a resident was fishing with his son at a pond. The son was on the opposite side of the pond from his father when a suspicious vehicle passed by. In an overheard conversation, the female passenger seemed to asked the driver a question about the boy. The son looked at his father and the dad told his son to come to him. The vehicle left the area.
Investigators say that in both cases the female was described as white, possibly Hispanic, with dark hair. In the Oct. 6 incident, the suspect was described as heavyset and in her mid-50s. At the time of the encounter, her hair was pushed back and she was wearing a white tank top and black mid-length yoga pants. The male subject was described in both incidents as a white man in his 50s. He was described in the Oct. 6 incident as being bald and was wearing gray shorts, flip flops and had tattoos on the right upper arm. The vehicle in the Oct. 9 case was described as a possibly a mid-1990’s Nissan Sentra or Toyota Celica that was gold-colored.
