Police in Fairfax County are looking for a suspect in a sexual assault and robbery of an elderly woman last week.

It happened on April 5 at Forest Glen at Sully Station, a senior independent living facility located in the 14400 block of Woodmere Court at around 11:20 a.m.

Police said this was initially a report of someone walking in through an unlocked door, but later, the 77-year-old victim's son called police saying his mother had been sexually assaulted.

Police said a man got into the home through an unlocked front door, engaged the victim in conversation and then sexually assaulted her. Then the man took some cash and left.

The suspect is described as a black male between 30 to 40 years old and about 6' tall.
