CRIME ALERT!  -- This is incorrectly reported as Green Run, but it is does border our community.


On Tuesday, March 13, 2012, at approximately 6:20 a.m., Emergency Communications received a call for an attempted sexual assault in the 900 block of Sedley Road in the Green Run section of the city.

A preliminary investigation revealed the victim was walking in her neighborhood and observed a male dressed all in dark colored clothing.  She noticed the suspect several times while on her walk.  A short time later the victim was approached by the suspect at gunpoint and forced into the yard of a home on Sedley Road where he attempted to sexually assault her.  A neighbor heard the woman crying for help and went to assist her.

The suspect is described as a black male, possibly in his teens, 5’11”, with a slender build.  He wore a dark colored hooded sweatshirt and long dark colored basketball shorts that came to the middle of his shins.  There was also a white triangle shaped emblem on the left side on the shorts.   

Anyone with information regarding this crime is encouraged to call Virginia Beach Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP (1-888-562-5887).  Callers remain anonymous and could be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward if their information leads to an arrest.

This case remains under investigation by the Department’s Special Victims Unit with Detective Lanis Geluso as the lead investigator.

Please remind residents to be very aware of their surroundings and again, to remember the "buddy system" when out and about during times when others may not be around - especially if it is dark outside.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like any additional information on personal safety.
Stay safe,
