The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office released a police sketch of a suspect, and the Internet can't get past how bad the sketch is.
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in apprehending this person of interest in an alleged sexual assault that took place in Chantilly, Virginia, around midday on Monday.The alleged victim was walking down a path in the area of Eastgate View Drive when she began to feel uneasy about a strange man following her. When she approached the area of Tall Cedars Parkway, the man reportedly groped her and grabbed her backside. Immediately, the victim screamed and turned around, finding a man smiling back at her with a large grin before he took off running south on Edgewater Street. Police describe the suspect as a thin African-American male in his early 20s, approximately six feet tall. The victim described that he had "perfectly aligned yellow teeth" with dark gums and a black mole under his eye. At the time, the assailant was wearing a red sweatshirt with a black Nike swoosh symbol, along with black shorts and black socks. That yellow-toothed grin has apparently been immortalized by a sketch artist working for the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, in what many are describing as the worst sketch ever produced by law enforcement. No, @abonilla90210 and @TJSin2Costa, this police sketch is apparently completely serious. Not only did the artist sign his or her work, but the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office published the "sketch" on their Twitter page as well... https://twitter.com/LoudounSheriff/status/864584144579436544 Laughter? Or do you mean terror? [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="1545,1546"] Oh my goodness, @edis_fitness has cracked the case... In all honesty, that's probably not a bad idea. Obviously, this isn't something that we should be laughing about. But this police sketch is just so... bad. Since the sketch doesn't really give the public too much to go on, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office has published a list of tips for people using Chantilly's public trails.
- Always remain alert and aware of your surroundings. Don't wear earphones if you are running alone.
- Walk, run or bike with a buddy or in a group.
- Let someone know when you are going out and when to expect your return.
- Stick to the trails that have higher foot traffic.
- Don't use the public trails when it is dark outside.
- Always carry a cell phone.
