police line1Fairfax County Police are investigating an attempted armed robbery that they say took place at a Reston business just after 7 a.m. last Friday.

Police said a man walked into a business in the 11700 block of Sunset Hills Road, displayed a knife and demanded money. When the victim refused to give the suspect any money he ran away.

The victim did not require medical attention, police said.

The suspect was described as a white male, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants and a mask.

Police did not name the business, but that location houses a 7-Eleven and two auto repair shops.

    Police did not name the business, but that location houses a 7-Eleven, a PNC Bank and a National Tire and Battery.

    There isn’t a PNC bank in there. It is just an ATM, and trying to rob them at knifepoint doesn’t work so well.

    The other business on the block is Wiygul automotive. It does open at 7, unlike the NTB store, but I’m guessing it was the 7-11.

      Agreed, and clerks at the 7-11 have the cojones to stand up to a knife point robbery attempt.

      Thanks for the clarification. Yes, most likely the 7-Eleven.

    “Give me all your money!” “No.” “Uh, OK, never mind.”

  • Greg

    It won’t be much longer before those businesses leave and another tower replaces them.

    So, this occurred on 8/7, and FCPD is just now getting around to telling the community about it?
