SPRINGFIELD, Va. (CBSDC) — A fourth young girl says she has been grabbed from behind and fondled in Fairfax County.
A 15-year-old girl told police she was fondled as she walked on Hibbling Avenue near Exmore Street in Springfield around 7:15 p.m. Tuesday.
The girl was able to pull away from the suspect and run away.
Fairfax County Police are investigating whether the assault is linked to three similar incidents that took place in the past month.
In each of those instances, which involved women between 16 and 26 years old, victims told police the suspect was a Hispanic male in his mid-30’s, between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8 with a close-cut beard and red baseball cap.
Anyone with information on these cases is urged to contact police.
