WOODBRIDGE, Va. (CBSDC) – Police are asking the public for assistance in locating the suspect in a sexual assault of a teenage girl that occurred in Woodbridge Monday afternoon.
Prince William County police responded to investigate a sexual assault reported in the 4400 block of Echo Ct. around 3:05 p.m.
The victim was a 15-year-old female of Woodbridge, who reported to police that she was inside her home when she heard someone knocking at her front door.
Upon answering, she encountered an unknown man claiming to work for a cable company, who asked to speak with a person who didn’t live at the home.
After informing the man that no one by that name lived in the home, the man left.
But the same man returned a short time later, this time threatening the young woman if she didn’t let him inside the home. Once inside, he displayed what resembled a knife and forced her to a bedroom where he sexually assaulted her.
At one point, the victim began to scream and kick towards the man, causing him to flee the scene.
She contacted the police after the encounter.
Officers checked the area but were unable to locate the suspect.
Police have released a facial composite of the suspect who is described as a black male, between 20 and 29 years of age, with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a gray jacket, red shirt, black pants and black dress shoes.
