This Week in Crime: Have You Seen This Man? Try Your Friendly North Point Starbucks

Fairfax County police have released this attractive composite sketch of the guy who attempted to abduct a 13-year-old girl at Reston's North Point Shopping Center on July 18.

The suspect is described as white and about 50 years old. He is about 5 feet tall and 180 pounds with gray hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a gray T-shirt, cargo pants and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), e-mail at, or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES (274637). Or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
This case isn't even remotely funny, we realize, but this may be the first composite sketch we've seen with such a... distinctive artist's signature. If you're an unknown artist struggling for recognition in an uncaring world, this sure beats painting caricatures of people with oversized heads playing golf, that's for sure. As opposed to decorating some godforsaken doctor's waiting room, at least this art might result in getting some creepy guy off the streets.
