This Week in Crime: Another Week, Another Incredibly Creepy Assault

Another creepy, middle-of-the-night assault has taken place in Greywing Square, this time after the assailant entered an apartment through an unlocked door.

Police are investigating a reported burglary and sexual assault that occurred early Saturday morning in Reston. At 2:45 a.m. on June 21 officers responded to an apartment in the 12000 block of Greywing Square. The victim, a 22-year-old Reston woman, was asleep in her bed when she awoke to an unknown man touching her. The victim yelled and the suspect fled out her sliding glass door. He then jumped off the balcony and ran away. The victim had no apparent injuries.

An investigation determined the suspect entered through the unlocked sliding glass door. The suspect was described as possibly Hispanic and 20 to 30 years old. He was about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 150 pounds with brown hair. He was wearing a light-colored, polo-type shirt with stripes and jean shorts.
The description matches the person who allegedly creeped out a couple of women in a laundry room in the same complex last fall. We've poked fun at people who'd found themselves in trouble after wandering the mean streets of Reston alone in the middle of the night, but it's a bit different when something like this happens inside someone's house. And by "a bit different," we mean it sucks.
