Police Investigate Abduction/Sexual Assault of 5-yr-old in Alexandria Area

Fairfax County Police have begun an investigation after a 5-year-old girl was abducted and sexually assaulted by a stranger in the 6700 block of Tower Drive in the Fairfax County section of Alexandria. It happened around 5 yesterday evening. Initially a family member noticed the child was missing, and she resurfaced a short time later reporting what had occurred.

Detectives are working with witnesses to gather as much information as possible about the suspect, who has only been described as a Hispanic male. Providing that witnesses are able to provide sufficient information to create a composite sketch of value, it will be shared with the public.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131. Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers by visiting, or text-a-tip by texting “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES (274637).
