Reward Offered Following Attack On Disabled Motorist

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is investigating a reported sexual battery that occurred last night on a rural road near Leesburg.

A 38-year-old Leesburg woman reported she was riding with a family member in the area of Gleedsville Road and Woodside Place when the vehicle broke down around 7 p.m. She decided to walk to get assistance.

As she was walking, a dark colored pickup with West Virginia tags approached her. The two men inside offered her a ride, which she accepted. Inside the vehicle, one of the men inappropriately touched the victim. She fought off the man who then physically assaulted her. She then got out of the truck, according to the report.

The victim was later picked up by her family member after the vehicle started.

The suspects are described as white men, both in their late 20s. The passenger was said to have a thin build and was wearing a white shirt and white baseball hat. The driver was wearing a dark colored T-shirt and had medium length sandy colored hair.

Deputies were notified of the incident around 7:55 p.m. as the victim was driving to the Cornwall Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries. A search of the area found but no vehicle matching the description of the pickup.
