Police: Woman Assaulted by Meat Salesman

Cedar Cove resident says man touched her when she let him in to use restroom.

A Reston woman says a salesman assaulted her in her home earlier this week.

The victim, 47, told Fairfax County Police a man selling meat products came to her door in the 2200 block of Cedar Cove Court on Wednesday. 

The man asked to use the restroom, police said. Once inside the home, he allegedly touched the victim against her will. He then left the home. The victim was not injured.

The suspect was described as white, 20 to 30 years old, approximately 6 feet tall and between 160 and 190 pounds. He had brown hair.

Brian, you guys are surer about not worrying about not being nice. on yelp, people have complained about Capital Meats...but no one who wants to come into a house or apartment should be trusted door to door.

exactly...but, regardless, door to door just isn't worth it anymore...even if the stuff was free. we have got to get out of always seeking a bargain and start feeling good about paying a fair price for what we buy. the best businesses demand a fair price and fair wage because they know they are guaranteeing quality. and satisfied customers are glad to pay a fair price for a good product or service.

Think it's these folks? Using google and chrome, I couldn't get to the website. Even without the reported assault or becoming verbally abusive, as someone else posted, lying about "surplus" meat he has to get rid of quickly so can give a good deal? I wonder if the company owners know that's what their salesman in this area is doing, and whether they know about the assault report. This is what I came up with. If it's wrong, I'll delete it. Contact Us - USDA Choice Steaks | USDA Choice Beef | USDA ... www.capitalmeats.com/contactus.cfm Capital Meats, Inc. 3908 Valley Pike Winchester, VA 22602. Tel: 540-869-1913. Baltimore, MD Office: Capital Meats, Inc. 8912-A Yellow Brick Road Baltimore ... And here's a review that's about the same company: http://www.yelp.com/biz/capital-meats-fredericksburg If the reviewer is correct and they don't have the correct license, if anyone spots the truck, maybe call the police (not 911 emergency). If they're hassled enough they may leave.

There is a pest control company going door to door that is using obnoxious tactics. A few weeks ago they told a friend of mine that a neighbor had recommended they speak to her. We believe they took the name of the mailbox. Last night a good looking young man came to our door - I turned it over to my husband, who couldn't get rid of the guy. Even after Paul said he needed to get back to fixing dinner for his 93 year old mother, the guy wouldn't give up. He used the same technique of referencing a neighbor. Finally shut the door on him. I saw the same guy walking down Twin Branches this morning. Beware!
