Urgent Alert
Suspicious Hispanic Male in the 5500 Block of Kirkside Drive (map location 3)

On Tuesday evening (Feb. 19) at 7:00 p.m., a young woman who works in the Village reported to police that, as she walked south on Kirkside Drive near the intersection with Grove Street, she noticed that a light blue or grey minivan was driving very slowly behind her. The minivan was also southbound on Kirkside, but the van crept slowly as it kept pace with her. At one point, the driver shone a flashlight at the woman. As the woman pulled out her cell phone to take a photo of the vehicle, the driver got out of the minivan and walked briskly directly toward the woman. Instinctively, she ran to a nearby friends house and went inside. The friend also saw the man, and he soon returned to the van and drove off. Village police were on the scene very quickly, but the van had already driven off. The vehicle is possibly a light blue or gray older Honda minivan described as beat up.

The suspect is described as follows:
Hispanic male, 25-30 years old
Short buzzedhaircut, no facial hair
Wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt (unknown color shirt)

The victim also reported that over the preceding couple of weeks, she had noticed a white panel van driving slowly behind her in that same section of Kirkside, however yesterdays event was the only one in which she was approached.

Village police have alerted both County and DC police, and Village officers will be working diligently to locate and identify the suspect. Residents are advised to stay alert especially when walking in the evening hours. Village police urge residents to call 301-654-7300 immediately whenever they see something suspicious.
