area, becaus the assault happened off the beaten path. so this was someone that was very familiar with the area. tonight, the suspect description is vague, all we know is that it was a man, he was about six feet tall between 140 and 150 pounds but even so, the entire incident has residents concerned. >> i have a 13-year-old granddaughter and she likes to go out with her friends and stuff. very concerning. it's just, there's a lot of things that go on in the neighborhood. but in the immediate area that we're in. we're fine. but yeah, there's a lot of things going on in here that make me feel unsafe. >> reporter: long time

>> reporter: the victim was able to escape from this man, who was also able to escape but the victim ran to a nearby business for help. now, she was transported to an area hospital just for precaution. police tell us that residents in that area and woodbridge should expect an increase police presence as the investigation continues. tisha lewis fox 5 local news eight story you saw first on fox 5. just in time for veterans day a virginia memorial honoring some fallen military members >> someone pointed out several mistakes and misspellings, but as fox 5 found out not all the mistakes were fixed properly. krysten leon joins us more with details. >> the county had the opportunity to fix this. and well, someone argue they didn't do a great job. just a little background here, the
been around very long but long enough for some people to notice mistakes on the names and ranks of the fallen men and women and how they died. county leaders were made well aware of this. today, we're fixing these mistakes. but as you're about to see here, they apparently may not have done it right. the second time around either. >> what's supposed to be a beautiful tribute. 66 bricks honoring stafford county's fallen servicemen and women did not turn outright the first time. jason pelt says >> generations will look at these bricks and say this is something that happened and if it's not right. we actually are not honoring the memory of our veterans. >> reporter: today, they tore out the majority of the bricks and replaced them with new ones. hoping to correct
mistakes. the county recognized there are mistakes made the first go around in the installation of this memorial. now they're fixing them. like with this brick, it should have been reads as edward should have read as edwards, however not all were fixed this time around. for pelt this was the opportunity to fix them. >> unfortunately not all of the bricks are correct. there are still some errors left. and the errors have to do with a death classification >> private first class wade heflin, still lists him as killed in action. turns out according to his death certificate, he died by disease. not killed in action. >> the information is wrong. the county knows it's wrong and the county specifically is going to not correct it. we tried reachin o
did not hear back. at the end of the day pelt believes this memorial is about paying respect to these men and women. but how can you do that, he said, when you're disrespecting they're history and who they were in the armed forces. >> this is a piece of history. we're creating historical document. and that's why it's so important to make sure it is right. >> in this case, pelt believes why even fix the bricks at all if you're not going to fix everything in this case? so the next step for him, he said, is to reach out to the county and local military groups as well to raise awareness here and not let this go unnoticed. jim and sarah. president trump relations are official >> what does it mean? but first, hey, fitz. >> reporter: virginia new govern elect meets the press b
