Police Still Looking for Suspect in Falls Church Sexual Assault

Alleged suspect may be involved in similar crimes in Fairfax County.

Falls Church police still are still looking for a man they say grabbed a woman’s buttocks and did not let go until she screamed in October.

The man approached the woman while she walked pushing her baby carriage near the intersection of South Maple Avenue and Gibson Street around 4 p.m. on Oct. 19.

Fairfax County believe the same man may be connected to several similar attacks in their area stretching from September to as recently as Nov. 1 in the Springfield area.

Police ask the community to be aware of your surroundings:

  • Do not wear headphones or ear buds. It is very difficult to hear cars, sirens, or someone running behind you when you are preoccupied with music.
  • When talking on a cell phone, be aware of what is going on around you.
  • Walk in lighted areas.
  • Keep your hands free, not overloaded.
  • If you are being followed: cross the street, scream, run to an occupied residence or store, or flag down a car and call 911.

Anyone with information about the possible suspect should call Detective Richardson at 703-248-5238.
