A local news station in the Washington, DC, area just reported that as many as five women may have been groped by the same sexual assaulter recently in Springfield, VA, a suburb of Washington, DC:
“The woman who may be the fifth victim said a man grabbed her from behind , grabbing her breasts right in front of her teenage daughter. She says he wasn’t out to rob her, because he did not steal her purse.
Police say the fourth attack happened on Tuesday at about 7:15 p.m. around the intersection of Exmore St. and Hibbling Ave.
Each time, the man grabs victims from behind and fondles their breasts.”
This is from a Washington Examiner article a few days ago:
“A man wearing a plain, red baseball cap is suspected in three different fondling cases in September in Springfield.
In the most recent, on Thursday, a 17-year-old girl was walking on the sidewalk around 9 a.m. on the 5900 block of Erving Street when she was grabbed behind and fondled.
On Sept. 18, a 16-year-old girl was walking on a path in the 6700 block of Metropolitan Center Drive around 2:45 p.m. when she was grabbed.
And a 26-year-old woman was walking near Old Keene Mill Road and Springfield Boulevard around 8:30 a.m. when she heard a whistle. When she reached the 7200 block of Monticello Boulevard, a man grabbed her from behind and fondled her.
All three victims described the suspect as either Asian or Hispanic and wearing a red baseball cap. One suspect said he had a thin, black goatee; another said he had a black, close-cut beard. One suspect said he was about 5 feet 8 inches tall, another said 5 feet 6 inches.
Anyone with information should call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-8477.”
Despicable. Also, I wish the news would correctly identify what’s happening as sexual assault instead of only referring to it as “fondling.”
I hope they catch him soon.Share on Facebook
