Loudoun County Sheriff's Office detectives have developed and released a composite sketch of the driver involved in the reported hit-and-run of an LCSO deputy in Sterling last week.

Authorities describe the driver as a 40- to 50-year-old black male with a medium complexion, approximately 240 pounds and taller than six feet. He reportedly wore a dark-colored knit cap and a black-gray jacket at the time of the incident.

Detectives last week released a surveillance video image of the suspect vehicle and determined it to be a silver or light gray 2019-2020 Nissan Altima with Ohio tags. LCSO officials say the vehicle should be damaged on the passenger side from the front to the middle of the passenger-side door.

The incident occurred Jan. 1 shortly before 11 a.m. near the intersection of S. Cottage Road and Lindsay Court. A deputy in the LCSO's Motor Unit was running radar in the area and signaled the driver to pull over. The driver reportedly stopped before speeding away and striking the deputy. Officials say the deputy sustained minor injuries.

Anyone with information regarding the driver's possible identity or the vehicle's whereabouts is asked to contact Det. C. Pickrell at 703-777-1021.
