PRINCE WILLIAM CO. – Authorities are searching for a man who is accused of biting, harassing, and inappropriately touching an employee at a Manassas boutique on Monday, police say.

Police responded to Le Tache Couple Boutique at the 10300 block of Portsmouth Boulevard around 8:45 p.m. to investigate an assault.

An investigation revealed that an unknown man walked into the business and approached a female employee who was standing behind a counter.

Police say the man went behind the counter and bit the woman. The victim pushed the suspect away, and then he began pacing around her and inappropriately touched her.

At some point, police say the suspect forced his way back behind the counter and attempted to lift up the victim’s skirt.

The suspect eventually left the business once the victim contacted police. No injuries were reported.

Police say they have not located the suspect.

Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic male, about 5’9″, 200 pounds, and with a heavy build.

If anyone recognizes the suspect, they are asked to contact Prince William County Police.
