Police Seek Man Who Sexually Assaulted Girl Outside Laundromat

Arlington County Police are searching for a man suspected of sexually assaulting a seven-year-old girl outside a South Arlington laundromat on Sunday.

Police say the man approached the girl while her mother was inside the laundromat at 3600 Columbia Pike.

“The suspect pulled the child inside a small play house and sexually assaulted her,” police said in a statement. “The child was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.”

The man is described as Hispanic, 5’1″, 130 lbs, with brown eyes, bushy black hair and a mustache. Police will be canvasing the area around the laundromat today, handing out flyers with the suspect’s sketch and information about the crime.

Anyone with information about the suspect should call Arlington County Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS (8477). A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered in the case.
