Around 9:30 p.m., Fairfax County police responded to the intersection of Bay Valley Lane and Compton Lane in the Centerville area. Officers said a woman was outside of her truck when a stranger approached her.
He tried to take her wallet. The woman fought him off, but not before he sexually assaulted her. The man ran into the woods before police arrived.
According to investigators, the man was around 40 years old, 6′ tall, with wide shoulders and crooked teeth. He had short, curly hair, and a beard. He was wearing khaki pants and a green raincoat.
