Loudoun County Sheriff's Office authorities say they're seeking a man who assaulted a juvenile girl in Sterling Wednesday.

A juvenile walking home from school in the Sterling area reported she was assaulted by an unknown male, according to the LCSO. The juvenile said she was on a walking path near Wrightwood Place around 4 p.m. when she saw a man who appeared to be jogging. The man then grabbed the girl, touching her inappropriately. She screamed, and the suspect fled.

He was described as 25 to 30 years old and approximately 5’5” tall with a thin build. He was wearing shorts with black tights underneath, a black jacket and a hat, according to reports.

The incident was called in around 4:15 p.m. LCSO deputies responding to the scene established a perimeter in the area but did not find a suspect, according to officials.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Detective E. Wilk of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021. Respondents can also submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app, which is available on the iTunes store and Google Play.
