STERLING, Va. (WUSA9) -- Police are distributing a composite sketch of a sex assault suspect in Loudoun County, near a community college campus.

The assault was reported on Tuesday morning, by a female student, near the NOVA CC, Loundoun Campus, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office said.

It happened at around 7:20 p.m. on Monday night, at a bus stop off-campus, on Potomac View Road, in Sterling, officials said.

A man, standing 5'6" to 5'7", with an athletic build, wearing a dark shirt and striped shorts, walked up to the woman and forcibly kissed and hugged the woman, officials said.

The man then ran away and the assault was reported the next day.

That assault reportedly happened about 20 minutes after the previous assault, on campus, by a similarly described suspect, officials said.
