Fairfax County Police Department

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who shared the surveillance images we released last week regarding a case of unlawful filming in the fitting room of a store in Fair Oaks Mall.

A 50-year-old Bristow man, Rudolph Doering, has been arrested for the attempted unlawful filming of a minor at Hollister Co. on January 7. Doering turned himself in last weekened after seeing the photos on TV that we released of him on our social media pages.

An investigation revealed that a 13-year-old girl shopping at Hollister Co. was changing in the fitting room when she saw a cell phone which appeared to be recording her from the stall beside hers. On January 12, we released images to the public of a person of interest in the case. Doering saw himself on TV and responded to the Sully District Station on January 14 where he met with detectives. A warrant was obtained this afternoon charging him with one count of attempted unlawful filming of a minor. He turned himself in at the Adult Detention Center shortly after.

We appreciate the cooperation of Hollister Co. employees throughout the investigation, and we, again, thank everyone who helped us share the images captured by surveillance cameras at the mall to solve this case!

Sharing in hopes to help our neighboring jurisdiction solve this case. If you have any information about the vehicle pictured below, please call the Herndon Police Department. We would also like to remind you to be aware of your surroundings and report suspicious activity!PUBLIC ASSISTANCE NEEDED: On 1/18/18 at 4:15 PM a juvenile female got off the school bus at the intersection of Crest Drive/Old Hunt Way and walked past a silver Toyota Scion. As she walked past the vehicle the suspect asked her for directions. When she walked closer to the vehicle, she noticed the suspect had no pants on and he was exposing himself. The suspect then left the neighborhood. The suspect is described as a white male, 20-25, with a long beard, and wearing only a gray hooded sweatshirt.
If you have any information or were in the area at that time, please contact HPD’s Detective Lange at 703-435-6846 or Jeffrey.lange@herndon-va.gov.

Someone needs to remind this little girl that grownups never should be asking children for help and she should never have approached the car. Praise God she’s OK.

Please spread the word - Never answer the asking directions question! And MORE IMPORTANT- don’t walk up close to the car! OMG - this news story could be so different- and awful!

This happened to me when I was a teenager. It is a good idea to not go up to cars with strangers in them, but please don't make this about her behavior.

this happened to one of my students last year, and in Herndon as well. Almost same descriptions about the man, except for the facial hair, and it was a silver sporty car with tinted windows. We reported it to the police but then nothing happened... This man harassed my student for a while and she called the police (town of Herndon) every time. But yet, he never got caught. Steve Vargas look babe. dont you think its too much of a coincidence?

Thank you to the girl who reported it.

Wish I did know who it was so I could turn him in. Creep.

Glad it wasn't worse! Very disturbing.

See something, know something, tell someone !

Nasty bastard

Thanks for sharing. Saving the video to show my grandsons, ages 3 and 4, who want to be firefighters when they grow up. As a taxpayer, I totally support this school program. 😊

You go men and women! Another 143 Fire and Rescue professionals to be released to the County!

FRD trains the volunteer EMTs, Fire Fighters, etc the same as the career employees. (Everything but HR stuff). I served as an Admin member, helped with the EMT-Basic volunteers as one of the fake medical patients for their state exams and ambulance ops. So fun. So happy to be part of it. So proud of FRD career and vol professionals keeping us all safe.

Meet Eva! Eva is just over a year old and SO SUPER SMART and SO SUPER ACTIVE!!!! When she first arrived she was very underweight, and needed some time to get back into good condition. Now that she's healthy and feeling great, we get to see her true personality! She really likes to play, and is particular about sharing her toys (she doesn't really like to share toys or food). Eva wasn't taught the basic dog skills, such as how to walk on a leash, and while our volunteers and staff have been working with her on this she'll need consistent work with whoever adopts her. Eva could play fetch for hours, and really needs a home where she can be very active and be mentally stimulated. She is a dog who needs a real job, whether that's accompanying her family on miles-long hikes and carrying her own pack, or learning a skill such as agility, or who knows what else! The sky is the limit, and Eva is ready to reach for that sky.

If you'd like to learn more about Eva and set up a time to meet her, please email us at animalshelter@fairfaxcounty.gov!

She is SUCH a sweet and fun girl! And yeah, she's got some energy to burn! She already knows some agility and does the A-Frame like a pro. She's great at fetching tennis balls and playing soccer with the jolly ball -- she just needs to learn how to stop playing when her human is ready to stop. Can't wait for her to find the perfect forever home!

Eva is wearing an adorable bow provided by Artisans and Crafters Supporting Animals in Need. Thanks Lori!

The Fairfax County Animal Shelter photographer is OUTSTANDING!

If she has such high drive, maybe she should be considered for professional training in some capacity?

So many deserving animals and she's one of them. <3

Julia Ballard this is the girl version of Roscoe!

She is really pretty:) I hope she finds a good caring family 🙏

Beautiful, hope she gets her forever home

She looks like a great dog! Love those shepherds!

Dawnielle Mills Carterr

Tara Nicole... because you need another dog!

Look at those beautiful ears!

That bow is simply fetching

She reminds me of my boy ♡ pretty pup!

A very good girl
