A 15-year-old police say was touched inappropriately by a man was able to help police arrest him almost a month later, Prince William police said.

The girl was walking in the Dumfries Plaza at 18039 Dumfries Shopping Plaza at about 11:15 p.m. on Nov. 12 when a man held her hands and inappropriately touched her behind the shopping center, police said.

She was able to kick the man and run away, according to police. When police arrived, the man had left.

But on Dec. 10, police said, the teen was in the area of Graham Park and Old Triangle roads when she saw the man walking down the road. She called police, and Jamario Claude Dawkins, 28, who does not have a fixed address, was charged with sexual battery and abduction with intent to defile.

Dawkins is being held without bond.

What a clown...groping a 15 year old because he's too much of a loser to have a girlfriend. I hope the criminal conviction that will follow you around the rest of your sorry life was worth it.

I commend the girl for her bravery. If the guy truely touched her, sorry but there are too many false claims by girls these days, then he deserves to spend decades in jail. No liberal sentences.
