GERMANTOWN, Md. - Police say a 21-year-old woman flagged them down at a Germantown 7-Eleven store around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday. She told investigators she was hanging out with friends nearby, and then decided to walk to the store to meet another friend. That is when she was attacked.
"As she was approaching High Point Drive, an unknown man approached her from behind, grabbed her and dragged her to a wooded area," said Lucille Baur of Montgomery County Police.
The suspect sexually assaulted the victim and then ran away. However, the victim did not get a good look at the attacker.
"We have a limited suspect description at this time. [We have an] unconfirmed race of this male attacker believed to be in his 20 or 30s. She describes him as short with a medium build," said Baur.
It's disturbing news to some who live in this community.
