Sexual assaults in Annandale
Fairfax County sex crimes detectives are investigating three incidents in which a man grabbed or inappropriately touched women after quickly approaching them at night as they walked in the Avant Apartment Complex in Annandale.
At about 10 p.m. on May 9, a 25-year-old woman walking through a common area of a building in the 4500 block of John Tyler Court was assaulted, police said. When she screamed, the suspect fled.
The second and third incidents occurred June 6. At about 3 a.m., a 23-year-old woman in a common area of another building in the 4500 block of John Tyler Court was approached by a man, who grabbed her before fleeing.
