Two McLean Teens Assaulted

Police are investigating a report that two 14-year-old girls were inappropriately touched on Monday, Aug. 20 at about 3:30 in the morning.

The girls were walking north on the east side of Chain Bridge Road from the area of Chain Bridge Court. As they turned to walk back, they noticed a man run across Chain Bridge Road and hide behind a bush at the far end of a church parking lot. As the girls walked down Davidson Road, they saw the same man walking toward them. As he got close, he reached out and grabbed one of the girls and wrapped his arms around her waist. The other teen tried to loosen his grip on her friend. The suspect then grabbed the second teen. He allegedly touched both of them inappropriately. The girls screamed, a dog barked and the suspect fled on foot, north on Chain Bridge Road. The girls ran home to contact police; they were not injured.

The suspect was described as Asian, in his 20s, about five feet 10 inches tall, with a thin build and short hair. He was wearing an orange and white striped T-shirt and blue jeans.
