Police are investigating after a 9-year-old girl reported being sexually assaulted by a stranger at Ben Lomond Park in Manassas on Oct. 11.

The girl reported that she was at the park at 7500 Ben Lomond Park Drive that afternoon when a teenage boy approached her.

During the encounter, the two conversed before the teenager hugged the victim from behind and assaulted her, Prince William County police 1st Sgt. Jonathan Perok said.

The victim separated from the suspect and went to her nearby home, where she immediately informed a parent who then contacted the police. The victim was not physically injured.

Officers checked the area for the suspect who was not located. The investigation continues.

The teen was described as Hispanic, about 13 to 15 years old, 5 feet 2 to 5 feet 5 and 140 pounds with a thin build, medium complexion, short curly brown hair, brown eyes and an ear piercing. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt, blue or gray pants, and tennis shoes with white socks.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 703-792-6500.

Just our innocent youth getting their daily acclimatization session of Prince William county becoming a sanctuary county. This will prepare them for the constant sexual assaults they will be getting once they go back to school full time.


I stomp on bridges to wake you up, fake. Will we see your troll account after the election?


Another democrat policy success story.


Another result of democrats open borders supporting illegals. Well PWC and Manassas, you are getting exactly what you have voted for.


Virginia is pretty far from South America. By your inference, every state to the south and west of VA should have the same amount of illegals running rampant throughout the land. And that is just not the case, except for irrational fear-mongering and stereotyping.


Another daca dreamer im sure.


Another dreamer.


I love how people automatically default to white when the term "American" is used. Very telling of an insulated education and exposure to others.
