Loudoun police investigate indecent exposure incidents

Police in Loudoun County are investigating a series of exposure cases near Sterling, Va., that they believe are connected.

The latest incident occurred at 10:45 p.m. on Thursday, when a teenage girl said she was standing outside her home in the 230 block of Greenfield Court and observed an unknown man exposing himself.

She described the man as a white or Hispanic male in his mid-to-late teens, about 5 foot 10 inches with a thin build. Police believe this could be the same man who has been exposing himself to Sterling residents since March.

On March 31st, a contractor working at a home on Wedgedale Drive said they heard a knock at the door and opened it, but discovered no one there. A few minutes later someone knocked on the door again. When the worker looked out the window to see who it was, they saw a man with a similar description exposing himself.

On April 8 someone called police saying they saw a man, with a similar description, exposing himself outside.

Police are asking anyone with information about these incidents to call 703-777-1021.

Two dead, four rescued after boat capsizes

Two people died and four were rescued after the 25-foot boat they were on overturned near Point Lookout State Park in Scotland, Md., on Saturday.

Officials from the Coast Guard said they responded to the incident after a charter captain heard a radio call for assistance for the boaters at about 8:30 a.m. The captain received the call from a family member of one of the people aboard saying the boat was taking on water, but lost communication with the woman shortly thereafter. Crews from the Coast Guard and surrounding jurisdictions deployed rescue boats to save the passengers of the vessel.

None of the victims have been identified. - Kate Jacobson
