The incident happened last night, just after 11:10 p.m., on the 1900 block of Wilson Blvd in the Courthouse area.

“As a female victim was walking on the north side of Wilson Boulevard, an unknown male subject approached a victim with his genitals exposed and placed them on her,” said an Arlington County Police Department crime report. “The victim fought back, creating distance and causing the suspect to flee.”

“The victim described the suspect as a short, dark-skinned male wearing a black hoodie,” said ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage. “The suspect fled on foot eastbound on Wilson towards N. Rhodes Street. Officers canvassed the area with negative results. A K-9 track could not be conducted due to heavy rainfall.”
