SPRINGFIELD, Va. (AP) - Fairfax County police say they have found the scene where a 5-year-old Springfield girl was assaulted after being abducted over the weekend.

Officer Don Gotthardt, a police spokesman, says the area was in a wooded area near the girl's home in the 7000 block of Brocton Court.

Authorities say an unknown intruder broke into the girl's home on Saturday and took her from her bed. The girl's parents and 1-year-old sibling were asleep at the time. Police say the girl made her way back home shortly after 4 a.m. and explained what had happened.

Authorities say the girl was treated at a hospital for injuries to her upper body.
