In the past week, there have been two suspicious incidents in the Ashburn area.

According to reports, on Oct. 6, a mother was with her two children at Legacy Park when she was approached by a woman multiple times who asked questions about her children and if she needed a nanny.

Reports said the mother described the situation as "odd," saying, at one point, the woman tried to touch her son.

Reports also said the woman would leave and come back after walking toward a man across the park.

"This is something where they were approached in the middle of the day; there's other people around, which that's not abnormal. It's in the middle of the day, so people are out and about, but you have to be safe. You have to look out for your families, your communities and be aware," said Mark Poland, Chief Deputy of Operations.

Reports said three days later, a father and son were at a pond near Oglethorpe Court, not far from the first incident, when a woman in a suspicious vehicle asked the male driver a question about the boy.

Reports said the father was disturbed by the situation and called his son over to him.

Deputies said no crimes have been committed, but they're airing on the side of caution with a few objectives for their investigation.

"Ultimately, to identify the people involved, to either prove or disprove their activity and what their intentions are [and] what their intentions aren't, could very well be legitimate, and someone may be looking for work. It's a little odd the way that they're approaching citizens," said Poland.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is asking the community to report any suspicious activity.

"The big thing is, again, anything suspicious, any vehicle, any person [or] any activity, please call and report it," reminded Poland.

Detectives said, in both cases, the woman was described as a heavy-set white or Hispanic woman in her mid-50s. The male was described as white, in his mid-50s and bald.
