    Sketch released of weekend robbery suspect

    A composite sketch of the suspect

    A composite sketch has been released of a man believed to have assaulted two women this weekend in Sterling.

    The first attack happened at 5 a.m. May 31 on the 2100 block of Stanford Square. According to a report from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, a 52-year-old woman was on her way to a friend's home when a man knocked on her car window, opened the door and demanded money. The suspect then ordered the woman out of the car and told her to take off her pants, sexually assaulting the woman. He fled when he heard the woman's friend.

    Just 30 minutes later, a 62-year-old woman was attacked on the 1200 block of East Severn Way, less than 2 miles from the site of the first incident. A suspect tried to grab the woman's purse, and after a brief struggle, the assailant hit the woman in the head with a handgun. The man was able to flee the area with the woman's purse.

    In both instances, the suspect is described as a black man in his late 20s. The first woman described him as around 6 feet tall, while the second woman identified him as 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall. Both women say he was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses, with the hood up to conceal his face.

    The robberies are similar to a series of cases that occurred in December and February in the Sterling area, including two in Stanford Square. A total of four women reported being accosted during those two months.
