CARROLLTON, Va. (WHSV) -- An 11-year-old girl from Carrollton was abducted at a school bus stop at about 8 a.m. on October 2.

The suspect forcibly put her in his vehicle and drove her to two different locations where he sexually assaulted her twice.

One location has been identified, but the second scene has not been located; however, police do have a description.

It's an old, abandoned two-story, wood framed house with no roof shingles and it's partially collapsing.

An old sofa can be seen through a collapsed wall and the home is located approximately 200 yards off the paved road, but can be seen from the road.

There are discarded HVAC units in the yard and across the road from the abandoned house are newer homes.

The closest home is a well-kept two-story house, painted white with red shutters and a gray roof. There is a new wooden fence around the backyard, but no fencing in front yard.

This location may be anywhere along the Route 13 corridor leading into North Carolina.

She was then driven back to the general area of the abduction and released.

She called her parents who called for emergency services at 12:30 p.m.

The child was taken to Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters for treatment.

As of 4 p.m. she was still undergoing a forensic examination.

The child described her abductor as an older white male with a blondish/gray beard, blond hair, blue eyes, cut-off jean shorts, and tennis shoes.

He was driving a 1995-2001 Chevrolet Cavalier, two-door, light gray or silver in color. The child saw the word "Chevy" hand written on the VA inspection sticker.
