      It’s probably the former Falls Church City Mayor’s douche bag Democrat husband

      Wait… 2006?

      • Maria

        Oh never mind. Got it.

    I went to high school with the accused car torcher… none of this surprises me

    What’s so sad about this is that it may prevent this young girl from traveling in the coummunity, gaining confidence in herself and trusting people. That age should be magical, not scary. I hope she is ok and, of course, this guy and all like him caught.

      Sadly, this is nothing new. There have always been and always will be monsters like this. Ask any woman and you’ll hear at least a few stories of predatory behavior experienced at age 13+, sometimes from family friends, dads of friends, men in cars, etc.

    White Hispanic Male?????? Is there such a thing?? WOW get your racial profiling correct POLICE!!!

    • Jason S.

      Most Hispanics are categorized as whites in crime reporting. I think it’s to spread the blame a bit.

    • brendan

      eh, both of you are way off.

  • Joe Hoya

    Typical negative media. Why not report all the times that teen girls are touched appropriately?

    i’m a manager at the italian store at lyon village,and can’t find the e-mail for the cops or the patch it was reported in and there was a bank robbery i think last weekend in clarendon and someone who fits the description was hanging around outside the shopping center.one of the regulars with the deli and starbucks said someone out front was seated at a table and harassing customers,also panhandling at giant.i didn’t see the front of him.same clothes though and hat.it was on a sunday.haven’t seen him since.maybe put a poster up.it was crowded so a lot of customers probably saw him.don’t get many like that the past years so other people probably noticed.i’ll ask the customer about it when i see him again,probably this week.
