The incident was reported to police on Wed, Nov. 1, and deputies said they "discovered possible additional encounters."

According to police, Vafaei rides his bicycle around the area, wearing goggles.

Anyone with any information on this assault is asked to call Detective C. Czekaj at 703-777-0475.
