There was no sexual assault today, as we first reported. Officer Janelle Smith, a spokeswoman for MCPD, said somebody tipped off police to a man who looked similar to a composite sketch of the suspect in the October incident.
At 11:39 a.m. today, police were called to search the Trail near the Arlington Road entrance for a Hispanic male with a mustache, riding an old-fashion bicycle reportedly toward downtown Bethesda. Police were searching the trail in both directions on Tuesday.
Police said a man riding a bicycle was seen in the area of the Trail between MacArthur Bouelvard and Massachusetts Avenue on the night of Oct. 21, when the sexual assault took place.
