WOODBRIDGE, Va. (FOX 5 DC) - Prince William County Police say a therapist sexually assaulted a 19-year-old client at a Woodbridge park.
Investigators are still searching for the suspect, Gary Alexander Horsey, 53, who lives in Prince George’s County.
Police say the alleged assault happened at Veterans Memorial Park on the afternoon of Tuesday, April 30. They say the 19-year-old woman met her therapist at the park, and then as they were walking on the trails, he sexually assaulted her.
Police say the woman told them it wasn’t uncommon for her to meet her therapist and speak to him as they went on a walk.
Police say after the assault, Horsey drove the woman home where she told family what happened. Police responded just before 5 p.m.
Horsey is now wanted on two counts of aggravated sexual battery and police say efforts to locate him have been unsuccessful since Friday when investigators got a warrant for his arrest.
No one answered the door at Horsey’s address in Clinton, Md., on Monday. A man answered his cell phone Monday evening and told FOX 5, “No comment. Have a nice day,” and hung up.
According to state records, Horsey has been a “licensed graduate professional counselor” in Maryland for less than a year.
While police couldn’t confirm where he’s employed, online records show he’s linked to a therapy center in Oxon Hill. A woman who answered the phone said she thought Horsey had been in the office earlier on Monday, but had left for the day. When FOX 5 visited the office, employees said they had not heard about the criminal charges.
Online court records show Horsey was accused of indecent exposure in the 1990s.
Prince William Co. police did not provide a photo of Horsey.
