Update at 12:20 p.m. — Police have provided more details and this sounds more like mischief than malevolence. The suspect touched the girl’s rear end, then mooned her and her companion before running away, police say.

We’re hearing that police are investigating an attempted sex assault that occurred just before 1:00 last night in the Williamsburg neighborhood of north Arlington.

According to initial reports, a man in his late teens or early 20s dropped his pants and then grabbed the victim, a 17-year-old girl.

It happened at the intersection of North Tacoma Street and Williamsburg Blvd. A police K-9 was brought in to try to track the subject — no word yet on whether any arrests have been made.

      Why would you want such a horrible experience? This is really nothing to joke about.

        I’m an undersexed former frat boy from the ‘burbs. Lighten up a little! I have lots of female friends whom I’d take a bullet for, and I in no way condone any sort of sexual activity that is non-consensual. Sheesh! I thought people in Reston couldn’t take a joke!

    really? a 17 year old? summertime? no school? c’mon… even if it was during the school year, this teen is just doing what every teen has been doing for the past 50 years.. out late partying, drinking, and getttin blazed.

    Where did this yokel come out of, the Treehouse of the August Moon?

    I was sneaking out of the house when I was 15 and doing things that would raise the hair on anyone’s back. Teenagers are a horny lot. The strong survive and learn the weak grow up to be republicans.

    The only weak ones Ive seen lately seem to be DEMOCRAPS!

    But the point of what this girl was doing out alone at 1am is valid. Where are the parents? Down at the bar? In the alley buying crack? Or at home stoned? Kids out this late leads to crime and troubles. Im all for a midnight curfew for anyone under 17 years and 364 days old.

    I love how the victim is being blamed.
