A man told police he was walking on Winterthur about 6 p.m. when he was approached by two men.

The suspects took the victim’s property by force then fled. No weapon was used and the victim did not required medical attention, police said.

    Robbery in Winterfell?

    He was wearing a purple hoodie in this heat? Who wears a hoodie when its humid and swampy FL like weather?
    I think Hunters Woods should form a neighborhood watch.

      I was told there would be skittles?

    Right near Hunter’s Woods and Shadowood… just a coincidence, I’m sure.

      Actually, its about a mile away from Shadowhood, nevertheless it gets a bit rowdy in the summertime. Try going by southgate sometime.

        I once broke up a craps game around there.

        The Shadowood residents who are not on house arrest — which is all too many of them — are easily able to walk a mile in search of prey.

    I ride my bike on the paths past Winterthur three times a week, and just south of the Winterthur complex at the Colts neck road underpass there is always at least 4 to 8 people hanging out and drinking and generally up to no good. The cops I assume must know this. There should be police on bikes patrolling the area. I feel unsafe in this area and only do a one way trip and come back home via roads instead of the paths.

      They have to conduct their business outsides due to VA’s gun laws. Buyers are at a significant disadvantage if a transaction goes south in a seller’s residence.

    The Hunter’s Woods neighborhood had said they set up a watch in this area? However, I don’t think it’s up to civilians, get the police on bikes patrolling here regularly, it’s a known problem.
