Suspect wanted for inappropriately touching woman walking in Chevy Chase

Montgomery County police are looking for a suspect who is accused of inappropriately touching a woman last month while she was walking in Chevy Chase, Maryland. They released a composite sketch of the suspect Tuesday.

Around 10:45 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26, police said the woman was walking north on the sidewalk of Wisconsin Avenue, in the area of Langdrum Lane, when she passed by the suspect, who was walking the opposite direction.
