A woman reported an attempted sexual assault this weekend in the Long Branch Creek community, according to information the Arlington County Police Department released Wednesday.
The woman was trying to get into her parked car in the 1200 block of South 28th Street in the early morning hours Saturday when an unknown man came up to her and stood in front of her car door, preventing her from leaving. He then attempted to fondle her breasts.
"He wasn't with her. He approached her from an unknown direction. She didn't see him until he was very close, attempting to grab her," police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told Patch.
"She's trying to get him away, screaming out, and then he flees."
The man didn't say anything. The woman was alone.
After the attacker ran away, the woman called police, Sternbeck said. She was not physically injured, he said.
The attacker was described as a 5-foot-1 man wearing a tank top-style undershirt and light blue jeans.
