State Police Investigating Attempted Sexual Assault in City
On July 10 around 12:10 am, a State Trooper patrolling on Fall Hill Ave was flagged down by a woman who reported that she had been assaulted by two men on the wooded path beside the roadway. The 19-year-old victim, a resident in the area, was walking from a home in the Fall Hill Townhouses to Forest Village Apartments when she was followed and attacked. The victim was able to break free from her assailants and run into the roadway just as the trooper approached the area. The victim could only describe her assailants as Hispanic males in their late teens or early 20’s; one of the offenders was wearing a red shirt with a cross on it.
Anyone with information about this incident should contact Virginia State Police at (800) 572-2260, Attention Special Agent J. B. Root.
