Composite Sketch Released

<bt>A composite sketch has been released from an attempted robbery that occurred Thursday, Nov. 2 around 12:30 a.m. in the 7400 block of Tillman Drive. A 17-year-old Tysons Corner-area woman was walking on Tillman Drive when she saw a shadow behind her. A man grabbed her from behind and covered her mouth. He carried her several feet away and threw her on the ground. He attempted to take off her boots but the victim kicked the suspect. He then tried to grab her purse but was unsuccessful. The suspect touched the victim inappropriately then fled from the same direction the victim had initially come from. The victim was not injured. The suspect was described as a black man in his 20s. He was 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall with a chubby build. He was wearing a black shirt, black hat and black tank top.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477 or Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
