witness contacted the agency reporting a possible crime.
The witness reported that approximately one hour before 
he called the Sheriff's Office, he saw a female being 
assaulted in the 100 block of East Holly Avenue. 

The incident reportedly occurred around 8 PM on Monday. 
As the witness approached the victim, the male subject 
fled the area.   
  
The victim was later identified and located by Loudoun 
Sheriff's Deputies and told investigators the suspect 
attempted to take her money and groped her. 
As investigators gathered evidence in the case, 
they were able to identify a possible suspect as a 
15-year-old from Sterling, Virginia. He was located by 
investigators on January 25, 2012.     
  
The suspect was also connected to an incident that

Sterling woman was in her car around 7 PM when an unknown 
subject approached her and grabbed her through the open 
driver's side door. The victim screamed and the subject 
fled on foot.   
  
The 15-year-old is facing juvenile petitions for sexual

incident and attempted robbery in connection with 
the January 17th incident. The name of the teenager 
cannot be released due to the fact that he is a juvenile.
