A reader writes in about witnessing a sexual assault on the Mount Vernon Trail in Alexandria, Virginia – specifically behind the old GenOn plant. Readers, let’s keep a lookout for this guy. Call APD at 703.746.4444 if you see something suspicious or if you see this guy fitting this description.
Dear Red Brick Town,
Hi there – I’m a local Old Town resident and thought I’d contact you to help spread word about a sexual assault on the Mt. Vernon Trail. I’ve just met with police and filed a report (the victim did not want to file herself, but I witnessed the assault and called to report anyway), but was wondering if you could help put the word out, as I know your site reaches a wide audience. I’m not sure if this is something you do, but thought I’d contact you in any case.
I witnessed an assault of another women jogging just behind the old Gen On plant, at around 3:45pm Thursday, October 15th. She was groped by a male who fled on bicycle.
He was a young, 18-25 year old Hispanic male, medium-short black hair, with a red t-shirt and a large black Nike-swoosh in the center of the shirt.
I’d be happy to communicate with you directly, but would appreciate if my own name/info would be anonymous. Many thanks for your help!
