Police released a sketch of a man they say tried to grab an 11-year-old girl from a Loudoun County neighborhood earlier this week.
The girl was walking in the area of the 43600 block of Mink Meadows Street around 7:45 p.m. when she was grabbed by the unknown man, authorities said.
The victim was able to get away from her assailant and run home.
"It tells you that no neighborhood is immune," Maj. Richard Flano with Loudoun County Sheriff's Office said. "It could happen anywhere. It could happen to anyone.
The girl's attacker was not located during a search of the area. The sherriff's office says he was described as being a Hispanic man with messy, dark hair. He was wearing a dark hoodie and torn jeans at the time.
Anyone with information is asked to call the the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475.
