Fairfax County police say they have arrested a door-to-door salesman from North Carolina after he allegedly sexually assaulted a teenage girl.
Police say 26-year-old Tommy Lee Harmon of Greensboro, North Carolina was selling carpet cleaning products Monday, when he knocked on the door of a home and met a 14-year-old girl, who was home alone. They say Harmon went inside and asked to use the bathroom.
After he left the bathroom, officials say he sexually assaulted the girl.
Police say neighbors told them about a group that had been selling items in the area. They later spotted a car matching residents' description and found Harmon, who is charged with taking indecent liberties with a minor.
Police say Harmon was with Pumppers Trust-Mrs. Clean Pump-it-Off Company, based in South Carolina.
