    Suspicious man sought in Sterling

    The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is seeking assistance from the public in identifying a suspicious person in Sterling.

    The man, who is described as white, 50 to 60 years old, with gray hair and wrinkles, has been approaching children in the Cascades and Lowes Island communities. He drives a dark blue pickup truck from the late 90s or early 2000s.

    The first of three incidents occurred about 12:30 p.m. Sept. 5. The man watched a girl load groceries into her car and then followed her to her home and parked outside, leaving only when her neighbors arrived, according to reports.

    About 2:40 p.m. Sept. 9, the man approached a girl getting off the school bus at Hollymead Place. The man asked her to go to Starbucks and when she didn't respond, he drove away.

    The most recent incident occurred Sept. 10 in the evening, when the truck pulled next to a group of children walking on a path alongside Algonkian Parkway.

    While the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the situation, deputies are asking anyone with information on either the car or the suspect to call Det. Tresselt or Sgt. Hunt at 703-777-0475. They can also email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

    Agreed. I hadn’t thought about that when I read the story, but you’re both absolutely right.
    Anyhow, I hope the get this guy soon.


    Good observation, “Inthepark.” That neighborhood went out of their way to disassociate themselves with Sterling by calling themselves “Potomac Falls.” Now when it turns out that they have the same issues as everybody else, there is no reason to stop using the name they prefer.

    I personally find the name Potomac Falls aspirational at best, as it bears such little resemblance to either Potomac, MD, or Great Falls, VA. But they deserve to be called whatever they want. Now Chelsea Manning on the other hand….


    The headline should say Potomac Falls NOT Sterling.  Cascades & Lowes Island refer to themselves as Potomac Falls not Sterling.  That area should be identified as such…even when the story is not about something positive.
