The Arlington Police Department is investigating what is at least the fifth confirmed attack on teenage girls in a specific neighborhood over the past six months.

The most recent incident was reported on Friday, April 18, in the 1900 block of Carter Drive, according to police. That location is where a man ran behind two teens — ages 14 and 15 — pushed one girl down and grabbed the second girl, police said.

That girl screamed and fought with the suspect before she and her friend ran away toward a neighbor's house, according to police.

This attack is similar to four others reported between November 2013 through January of this year. Those reports involved a man who approached and inappropriately touched other teenage girls in the same general neighborhood.
