Girl, 10, assaulted in P.G. apartment
Question of the Day
A 10-year-old girl was sexually assaulted Monday morning by a man who entered her family's Oxon Hill apartment through her bedroom window, according to Prince George's County police.
The assault was reported around 6:45 a.m. at an apartment in the 5400 block of Livingston Terrace. Police think the incident may have started as a burglary. The man entered the girl's room from a first-floor window, police spokesman Cpl. Larry Johnson said.
The girl's family members were also home at the time of the first-degree sexual assault but were in separate rooms, Cpl. Johnson said. The man had a beard and wore a black scarf that covered his face, police said.
Prince George's police have recently sought help identifying suspects in two other sexual assaults this month in the Forestville area. While officials think those incidents could be related, they do not think Monday's incident is part of serial attacks.
"As of right now, they are just investigating this situation as one incident," Cpl. Johnson said.
The Forestville assaults occurred at night on Sept. 6 and Sept. 16. During the first attack, a man touched a victim in the 6200 block of Surrey Service Drive but the victim was able to escape after a struggle.
In the second incident, a man approached a victim from behind and pulled her into a wooded area near Pennsylvania Avenue and Walters Lane where he sexually assaulted her.
