Masked Man Strikes Again
Police believe that a 28-year-old Falls Church-area woman became the latest victim of the masked sexual predator. This incident took place on Wednesday, December 19 shortly after 6 p.m. near the intersection of Little River Turnpike and Backlick Road. The victim was walking along Little River Turnpike toward her bus stop on Columbia Pike when a man approached her from behind, pulled her to the ground and attempted to restrain her. The victim fought back and thwarted the attack. She was not seriously injured. The suspect fled west on Little River Turnpike.
The suspect was described as white, in his 30s, approximately 5 feet one inch tall, weighing about 140 pounds. He was wearing dark clothing and a black ski mask.
Detectives are looking into the possibility that this case may be related to two previous incidents; the first on November 14 and the second on December 17.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477 or Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
