Fairfax police: Two women sexually assaulted on same street

Two separate women were sexually assaulted on the same Lorton street in 12 hours Monday, police say.

A 27-year-old woman tells police she was walking in the 9600 block of Hagel Circle just before 9 a.m. when a man touched her inappropriately. She was not injured.

Less than 12 hours later, police say an 18-year-old girl was walking near Fernedge Lane and Hagel Circle when a man touched her inappropriately. He took off when she screamed. She was not injured.

While police believe the assaults are connected, they don't believe they are connected to the recent string of gropings in Springfield.
