Suspect Arrested After Police Say He Molested Girl, 11, at Target

The man police say molested an 11-year-old girl at a Target store in Fairfax County last weekend has been arrested.

Police identified the suspect as Brendon Jennings Cordova, 19, of Vienna, Virginia, after receiving an anonymous tip. A Fairfax County police officer not involved in the case also saw images of the suspect and recognized a logo on his shirt, police said.

Cordova turned himself in early Thursday after negotiating with his attorney, Fairfax County Police said in a release.

Police said the victim and her father visited the Target in the Mosaic District in Merrifield on Saturday. The victim told her father after they got home that a stranger had touched her buttocks while they were in the store, police said. Her father then called police.

Surveillance footage from Target confirmed the girl's account, police said.

Police are currently looking into other possible victims. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
