    Second bathroom assault reported at Dulles Town Center

    A second woman has reported to Loudoun deputies that she was assaulted in a Dulles Town Center bathroom.

    The latest incident happened around 11:30 a.m. Friday, according to reports. A 16-year-old girl was inside a bathroom stall when an unknown man reached underneath and grabbed her.

    The man left after the teen screamed.

    The suspect in that case was described to deputies as a black man, approximately 6 feet tall, with a thin build. He was wearing a black jack and red baseball hat.

    A similar incident was reported on May 14 when a 62-year-old woman was inside a bathroom when an unknown male inappropriately touched her from an adjacent stall.

    The man then fled the bathroom.

    The suspect in that case was described as a black man in his early 20’s. At the time of the incident he was wearing jeans and white t-shirt with a black leather vest and a red/black hat.

    Anyone with any information is asked to contact Detective J. Oksanen of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475.

    If the caller wishes to remain anonymous, they are asked to call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. If the information provided to Loudoun Crime Solvers leads to an arrest and indictment, the caller could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.  


    it’s Bushes fault

    Fortunately it wasn’t my wife, but then he’s lucky it wasnt’ because he’d have a few leaks from his exit wounds.

    Doesn’t the Mall have their own Security, if not, they should. and what about cameras outside the bathrooms.

    ashburnfella - It is my assertion that since taking office Chapman has reduced the size of the mall unit by 50% to make bodies available for a myriad of “special assignments” elsewhere.  Incidentally, the same situation has infected the regular patrol ranks as well. As a result the delivery of core services have suffered greatly. In addition, chapman’s policy, has tasked the depleted mall unit with answering calls for service at properties adjacent to the mall which routinely takes them out of the mall service area entirely. If a call for service erupts at the mall while the deputies are gone due to staff shortages or a call for service, a patrol unit assigned to a sector is dispatched to the mall leaving a neighborhood without coverage.  Unfortunately the entire organization in infected with various similar issues due to chapman’s archaic staffing plan.  Yes, it is my assertion that had the mall been fully staffed, visibility would have been increased and routine checks in places like the restrooms would have been more frequent possibly preventing these incidents from occurring.  The Dulles Town Center accounts for a large portion of the criminal statistics logged in the Eastern Loudoun Service Area.  It is densely populated most of the time and has many things to tempt and attract all kinds of criminals.  It only makes sense that there be a law enforcement presence. It’s high time someone take a look behind the curtain at the Sheriff’s Office.

    If he maintained the larger size of the mall unit, is it your assertion that the additional guard(s) would have prevented this?

    non of this kind of thing ever happened before Sheriff Chapman reduced the size and effectiveness of the Mall unit.  Another example of his lack of understanding of local police work and where the needs are.  Loudoun is NOT safer under his administration.
