Centreville woman sexually assaulted inside her home

A Centreville woman woke up Sunday morning to find a man sexually assaulting her inside her bedroom, authorities say.

Fairfax County Police say it happened inside a home in the 13000 block of Winding Oak Circle at about 3 a.m. Sunday. The victim, a 27-year-old woman, told police that she woke up to the unknown man assaulting her.

When she tried to fight off the suspect, he fled on foot. Police say the man, described as a 25 to 35-year-old Hispanic male, also stole electronics after entering the residence through an unlocked door.

"It's always been very quiet out here,” says Nick Hall. “Never had an issue."

Police say the man was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants. Anyone with information is asked to contact Fairfax County Police or Crime Solvers.
