Police: Attempted Robbery at Knifepoint at Hunters Woods

Fairfax County Police Four teens — including one with a knife — tried to rob a woman of her purse at Hunters Woods Village Center on Wednesday, Fairfax County Police said.

Police said the woman was walking in near 2310 Hunters Woods Plaza about 3:30 p.m. when the suspects attempted to rob her. A nearby citizen saw the fracas and attempted to help the woman.

One of the teens displayed a small knife and threatened the bystander before fleeing the area on foot. They did not obtain the victim’s purse, police said.

The suspects were described as black and in their teens, police said. Some of them had backpacks and one wore a black T-shirt and blue jeans. The victims did not require medical attention.

On Saturday, teenage suspects also tried to rob a cyclist on Soapstone Drive a few blocks from Hunters Woods.
