police line1Fairfax County Police are looking for two suspects who robbed a man at knifepoint Monday afternoon near Reston Regional Library.

One of the suspects displayed a knife and demanded property. The suspects took property and fled, police said. The victim was not injured.

The first suspect was described as a black male in his 20s, about 6 feet tall, average build, short hair, wearing a black shirt and black shorts. The second suspect was described as a black male, in his 20s, about 6 feet tall, braided shoulder length hair, wearing a tank top shirt, and red shorts.

    Broad daylight? A block from the Police station?

    • Fashion Police

      Nobody dresses like this, tank tops red shorts, got frontal lobs?

      • Mike M

        Lobes? Smarty pants?

      Do you ever see any actual police around? Maybe sometimes driving in and out of the station parking lot – but on foot near the library, not so much, despite the presence of lots of bums and riffraff.

        No. It’s quite the windowless, high-security bunker they have there. It’s ironic because I think the “planners” put them there because they might well be most needed in that particular hood.

    I guess the South Lakes affiliates are opening a new franchise near RTC.

  • Ming the Merciless

    So there, all you racists who think crime only happens in Hunters Woods because more black people live there!

  • Arielle in NoVA

    Not reassuring 😛

    it could of been much worse, it could of been Lorena Bobbitt with a knife.

  • EMS2006

    Brazen to commit a crime right across from the sheriff sub station.

    • Ming the Merciless

      Criminals have poor impulse control and disregard for the law. Who knew?

      • Emmanuel Goldstein

        Probably under 25 with poorly developed frontal lobes

        • Eleni

          There is a homeless shelter is across the street from the police station and next to the library. Maybe the robbers were homeless people?

    The frontal lobes trolls are getting really tiresome. Give it up already. You’re not cute.

  • Paul

    If the victim had a CCP and a pistol this crime would have been prevented.

    What you are talking about is institutionalized racism. Kate Hudgins needs to understand that it cuts both ways and doesn’t really work at all.

    I’ve been saying for a long time that Hudgins and Bulova need to go. But the Liberals of Reston are fooled by the race baiting and racial politics. Ken Plum is part of the problem too. Read his recent “Fourth of July” message. It was one big bundle of nasty racial politics.

    I am shocked to be reading that two young black men committed a crime. I have never heard of such a thing.

  • Wild Bill

    That’s horrible. How can that be? Foetus, would your cop friends be willing to meet and discuss this issue with a concerned group of neighbors? We have to do something people.
