Lincolnia, Va. (CBSDC) – A young girl was snatched up from a playground Sunday evening then taken to a remote location where she was then sexually assaulted.
The incident occurred while the 5-year-old girl was playing on the playground in the Lincolnia area near Lachine Lane and Manitoba Drive. Police say a Hispanic man grabbed the girl and took her to the basement of a nearby building where he assaulted the minor.
Police are describing the suspect as a Hispanic man of medium height, with an average to heavy build, and black hair. He was wearing a long-sleeve button down shirt and dark pants.
It is unclear if the girl knew her attacker.
WNEW reporter Kevin Rincon says police will be canvassing the area, handing out flyers in the neighborhood in hopes to find out more information that could lead to an arrest.
