Police: Teen Girls Sexually Assaulted in McLean
Incident occurred Monday along Chain Bridge Road
Fairfax County police are searching for a man who allegedly grabbed two teen girls as they walked early Monday morning along Chain Bridge Road in McLean.
Police say two 14-year-old girls were headed northbound from the Chain Bridge Court area on the east side of Chain Bridge Road around 3:30 a.m. Monday.
When they turned around to head south, the girls told police, they saw a man run across the road and hide in the far end of a church parking lot behind a bush.
When the girls continued down Davidson Road, the man walked toward them, "grabbed one of the girls and wrapped his arms around her waist," police said in a news release.
When the other girl attempted to break the man's grip on her friend, she was also grabbed.
The girls told police they were both inappropriately touched by the man. They screamed, causing a dog to bark and the man to flee northbound on Chain Bridge Road.
The teens escaped and ran home to call police. The department said the girls were not injured.
Police say the suspect is an Asian man in his 20s, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a "thin build and short hair."
At the time of the incident, he was wearing blue jeans and an orange and white striped T-shirt, police said.
