Woman robbed, sexually assaulted in Friendship Heights area

Posted: Updated:

Police are looking for help from the public in tracking down a man who robbed a woman at knifepoint Tuesday night and sexually assaulted her in a Friendship Heights neighborhood.

The horrible scene played out right outside the FOX 5 studios. And building surveillance cameras captured a portion of the crime. We have turned the video over to police to help them catch the criminal.

It was about 10:19 p.m. Tuesday when the video shows a woman walking south on Wisconsin Avenue and a man following her. When she turns left on Garrison Street towards 41st Street, he does too.

Another camera captures the woman passing the FOX 5 parking lot back gate. A short time later, the man is also seen.

Police believe the man abducted the woman at knifepoint and then walked her back towards Wisconsin Avenue, where they are seen together, walking almost like a couple.

Police say the suspect forced the woman to get money from an ATM and then took her to a nearby alley where he raped her.

Anyone with information should call 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.
