One man may be behind two recent Arlington attacks, police say

Arlington police are looking for a man they say sexually assaulted a woman behind a restaurant on May 14.

A woman was walking behind a restaurant in the 2000 block of Wilson Boulevard around 10:50 p.m when a man grabbed her from behind, police said in a Tuesday press release. He held her arm and sexually assaulted her with his other hand, according to police, then fled on foot after the woman fought back.

The suspect was described as a "white Hispanic male" who was about 5 ft. 7 in. tall with a medium build, police said. He was wearing a white chef's style jacket and dark pants.

The attack was similar to another one that took place on May 8 in the 1800 block of N. Scott St., police said.

Police ask anyone with information about these attacks to call Detective Robert Icolari at (703) 228-4240 or e-mail him. They can also call the county's tip line at (703) 228-4242 or Arlington County Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS (8477).
