Serial Groper Strikes Again, 18th Incident Wednesday

FCPD release new sketch; police responded to incident just after 5 p.m. Wednesday in Springfield.

The serial groper has likely struck again, for the 18th time. Fairfax County Police detectives are investigating "what they consider to possibly be the 18th incident in this series," a news release from FCPD Thursday reads.

Officers responded to the 6600 block of Grey Fox Drive in Springfield Wednesday shortly after 5 p.m. for the report of a 21-year-old woman who had just been assaulted. Wednesday's incident took place about five miles from the last incident, which took place Jan. 30. Both took place on a Wednesday in the afternoon.

The victim was walking alone Wednesday when the suspect approached her from behind, grabbed her buttocks and then fled, police said. The victim was not injured.

The suspect was described as white or possibly Hispanic, 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 8 inches tall, and approximately 180 pounds. He was wearing a gray T-shirt with blue sleeves, dark sweatpants, white sneakers and a cloth partially covering his face.

Detectives are also releasing a new composite sketch of the suspect involved in the two incidents reported on Wednesday, Jan. 30. In both of those cases, the suspect was described as having acne or shaving bumps on his cheeks.

Get this fool on Obama's Kill List and take out "The Springfield Fondler" with a laser guided drone attack you can bet he is an undocumented alien. We have the technology lets use it.

I think these comments are getting WAY out of line. The "Ghetto?" The "Projects behind Giant?" Are you kidding me? What exactly is your definition of a ghetto? And because he's a criminal he has to live in the "Projects?" He can't own a single family house or townhome? Anyways, this serial groper is following the same trend as any other criminal that gets away with a crime. He's over confident and it'll be a matter of time before someone catches him in the act and detains him until the police arrive. For the sake of my family, I hope he gets caught soon.

Dayactionlaborers, your comment was deleted; it was disrespectful and racist and violated Patch's Terms of Use.

With all this hyper sensitivity about not wanting to offend the Gropist race we are in reality letting him fondle America. The Police are basically helpless due to the racial profiling rules about immigration. This is a symptom of open borders and a lack of Leadership in our Government.The Gropist no doubt knows this with his reported acne.
