ARLINGTON Arlington police are still searching for two young adult male suspects in a June 11 assault on the 18400 block of 31st Avenue NE.
At 9:15 p.m. a 26-year-old Arlington woman was attacked by the two suspects as she was walking northbound on 31st Avenue NE near a wooded area. The suspects pulled the victim into the woods and took her to the ground, but the victim fought off her attackers and possibly tore one of the suspects earlobes while pulling on his earring. The suspects then fled on foot through the wooded area and police officers searched the area without result.
The first suspect was described as a white male, approximately 56 to 60, with a skinny build and a crew cut with light-colored hair. He had no facial hair or glasses and the victim did not see any tattoos on him. He was wearing a white or light-colored tank top with no writing and baggy blue jeans with holes, possibly blue in color. This suspect may have a torn left earlobe where a piercing would have been.
The second suspect was described as having a darker complexion and being approximately 20 years old, with a skinny build and an unknown height. He had no facial hair or glasses, nor did the victim see any tattoos on him. He was wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt, possibly with a Georgetown University logo. He may have had a pierced eyebrow and he had a high-pitched voice.
