This week in crime: Here we go again

Just another Saturday night in Reston: Two women were assaulted.

At 10:10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29, a 24-year-old Reston woman walked into the laundry room of an apartment in the 12000 block of Greywing Square. A man followed her in and grabbed her from behind. The suspect pushed the victim to the ground and fled when she screamed.

A short time later a second woman was assaulted at approximately 12:50 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30.

A 19-year-old Reston woman was walking along a path near Colts Neck Road and Sunrise Valley Drive when she noticed a man walking on the path from Greywing Square.

The man began following the woman and trying to engage her in conversation. The woman turned around and saw the man fondling himself. The suspect grabbed the victim but she was able to break free and run away.

Both victims described the suspect as a Hispanic man in his 20s to 30s. He was approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighed 160 to 170 pounds. He had short brown hair that was slicked back.
The usual snide comments about Reston crime aside, why is it that these fumbling assaults on women are the perennial problem here, and why do they never end in arrests? Remember two summers ago, when some random creep was harassing women near Lake Anne? Apparently no one else does, but that guy was never caught, either.
