Police Say Woman Was Dragged Into Woods Near Tall Oaks, Man Tried To Remove Her Clothes

Police are investigating an apparent attempted sexual assault near Tall Oaks Village Center.

Police say that at about 2:30 p.m., a man came out of the wooded area, approached a 22-year-old woman from behind and pulled her off the sidewalk into the woods before attempting to remove her clothes. He apparently fled before any sexual assault took place.

A wooded area off the south side of North Shore Drive, adjacent to the Tall Oaks pool and across from the entrance to the village center, has been cordoned off for the investigation.

According to Pfc. Michael Crutchman of FCPD’s Media Relations Bureau, the suspect is a Hispanic male in his late 20s or early 30s, with brown hair and a full beard. He was wearing a gray shirt with red lettering, a red ball cap and shorts.

The suspect fled the scene in a gray or silver Hyundai with a license plate that is believed to begin with a V, police say.

Anyone with information about this crime should call 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or text “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637).
