Man Accused of Inappropriately Touching Minor at Arlington Cemetery

The FBI is seeking a man who they say inappropriately touched a girl as the two stood in a crowd during a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.

The incident occurred about 11 a.m. Monday. The suspect repeatedly inappropriately touched the minor victim, according to an FBI poster sent out Wednesday.

The victim and the suspect did not know each other, the FBI said. Authorities are now seeking to identify the man.

The suspect is about 5 feet 5 to 5 feet 7 inches tall and is between 50 and 60 years old, with short, spiky, gray and black hair, the FBI said. He was wearing a blue or gray short-sleeved shirt and dark blue shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI's Washington Field Office at 202-278-2000 or a local FBI office, or to submit a tip on the FBI's website here.
