Teen sexually assaulted by gunman in Southeast Washington

A gunman sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl early Saturday morning in a Southeast Washington alley, D.C. police said Monday.

The teen told police she was walking in the 3200 block of Wheeler Road about 6:15 a.m., when a man forced her into the alley at gunpoint and sexually assaulted her, officials said.

Police described the suspect as a black male with a medium complexion, tall and stocky build, who wore all black clothing. He reportedly drove from the scene in a dark blue, four-door car, authorities said.

Clarence Williams is the night police reporter for The Washington Post and has spent the better part of 13 years standing next to crime scene tape, riding in police cars or waking officials in the middle of night to gather information about breaking news in and around Washington.
