attempted to hug and kiss two women near Northern Virginia Community College’s
Loudoun campus, according to a report from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

A similar incident was reported to campus police around 7 p.m. on the same day. The campus police and the LCSO are working together to determine whether they are related and whether there is more than one suspect.
