    A man inappropriately touched a girl and tried to touch her older sister in Annandale, Fairfax County police said.

    He assaulted the 11-year-old then tried to touch the other, but she fought him off and he fled.

    “The fighting and the noise that was made from both girls kind of scared and alarmed him and made him run away,” Fairfax County police Officer Kent Bailey said.

    The girls’ mother and stepdad believe the man wanted to take the girls.

    The man is described as Hispanic, between 30 and 40 years old, 5-feet-4-inches to 5-feet-6-inches tall, with a heavy build and short black hair. He was wearing a green vest, a plaid long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans.
