Police Called After Unwanted Hug in Vienna

An unwanted hug led to a call to police in the Town of Vienna Thursday evening.

The creepy incident happened at the intersection of Maple Avenue W at Center Street N and was reported around 6:45 p.m., according to police.

“A woman advised she was standing in front of Starbucks when an unknown man approached her and asked for a hug,” said today’s Vienna Police Department crime report. “When the woman ignored the man, he wrapped his arms around her, hugging her. The woman ran from the man and notified the police after she arrived home.”

Should the man ever be caught, he could face assault charges.
