The Fairfax County Police Department is investigating two sexual assaults that occurred within 25 minutes of each other Wednesday in what could be the sixteenth and seventeenth attacks by the Springfield groper.

A 30-year-old woman was groped around 3:10 p.m. Wednesday while walking south on Dinwiddie Street near Dana Avenue. The second incident took place just a few blocks away on Backlick Road near the intersection of Cabin John Road. There, a 25-year-old woman was also groped at around 3:35 p.m.

In both instances, the attacker was described as Hispanic and around 5-feet-6-inches tall, which matches some of the previous descriptions of the Springfield groper, whose record stretches as far back as September 2012.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, email at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES/274637 or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
