Weekly Incident Summary Report
June 7-13, 2006


Seafarer Way, 7800 Block:  On Sunday, June 11 around 6:45 p.m., four children were playing near the 7800 block of Seafarer Way, in the Lorton area. The children, ranging from 5 to 8 years old, were approached by a man who tried to talk to them. The children knew the man was a stranger and walked away from him. He approached them a second time and offered to show them a box of rabbits. The children followed the man a short distance. When they stopped he told them to close their eyes. The man convinced one of them, an 8-year-old Lorton-area girl, to walk further with him near a wood line.  Once at this location the man exposed himself to the girl. The girl ran away from the man and told her parents. The suspect was described as a white man in his 20s, approximately 6 feet tall, 180 pounds, with short brown hair. He was wearing a blue T-shirt; faded, cut-off blue jean shorts; a blue hat and tennis shoes.
