Two sexual assaults near Annandale

There have been two sexual assaults recently not too far from Annandale.

On Sunday, Aug. 19, a 5-year-old girl was assaulted in Lincolnia between 7 and 8 p.m. According to a news release from the Mason District Police Station, the girl was playing in the area of Lachine Drive and Manitoba Drive when a man took her into the basement of a nearby building on the 4900 block of Manitoba Drive and sexually assaulted her.

The suspect was described as Hispanic, medium height, average to heavy build, black hair and wearing a white, long-sleeve button-down shirt and dark pants.

On the same day, at around 11 p.m., a 19-year-old woman was attacked in the 7600 block of Lee Highway in Merrifield. The woman was walking along Lee Highway when a man approached and displayed a knife. He forced her into some nearby brush and sexually assaulted her.

The suspect in that incident was described as a short Hispanic man in his 30s with short black hair and wearing a black T-shirt and jeans.

Anyone with information on either crime should contact Crime Solvers by phone, 866/411-TIPS/8477, text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES/274637, or call Fairfax County Police at 703/691-2131.


  1. Just some of the great benefits of having illegals roaming around.

  2. Which is worse, point out the truth or supporting the policies that allow these criminals (who we don't know who they are or if they have a criminal background) to roam around and attack women and little children?

    Take a look at the descriptions of local sexual assaults in the paper or police blotter.

  3. How do you know that they are 'illegals?'

  4. they are not described as illegals. idiot.

    Frankly, I am a little surprised that comment - from a clear troll - slipped past the moderator. I hope it is deleted soon.

  6. First of all I feel for the little girl who was sexual assaulted but my question is where are her parents. I have a five year old and he is not allowed out of my sight. I do not understand how this nasty human being was able to get a five year old.

  7. I agree being Hispanic myself. I am angry at all if these undesirables roaming the streets. Time to get serious about immigration. Let's enact some of Arizona like legislature.
