    That area sounds awfully close to that low income housing near the Safeway. Always a lot of thuggery going on there

    • qwerty

      I know! They were probably Syrian too.

      • bet

        Im gonna bet they were a bit darker then that….

      This has NOTHING to do with the silver line. It’s the same ole same in that part of town, all that low income housing. Those walking paths are a robbery waiting to happen and that Safeway is none to safe

      • Sheik Yerbouti

        It happened at 2pm in the middle of the day, I though those paths only got sketchy at sundown.

      • WheelieRestin

        Oh ok hmm I just thought because they were apprehended at the station they were attempting their getaway via the train.

    • Noelle

      That area behind Safeway has been sketchy for several years, way before the Silver line.

  • suspect

    Hunters Woods, Robbery, Metro. Any guess what the description of the suspects is?

    • meh

      Clearly it’s the Amish at it again

  • Sheik Yerbouti

    3 vs 1 sounds like a gang problem or it could be a hate crime.

    One more reason to move away from this area – Liberals will ruin it.

        A most powerful counterpoint GB. With this visual nannie, nannie, poo-poo, you win the debate hands down! And we’re the trolls, right? because we disagree with you. Right. Got it.

  • shocked

    I am shocked that something like this would happen in such a diverse part of Reston. All those wonderful section 8 dwellers getting all the free handouts must be horrified.

    • Ljacobs

      I have section 8 and I work at a private school and unfortunately I don’t meet the quota you are setting. So before you go stereotyping everyone on “this” side of town know your facts. Not everyone is getting a handout. #jerk-off

      • Mike M

        But you are?

      • meh

        By definition section 8 is a handout.

      • shocked

        By the very definition, you are getting a hand out. You’re welcome.

  • meh

    So you live next to Ken Plum?

    “. . . the tunnel near Colts Neck Road . . .”

    No way! Lucy Caldwell declared no particular crime problem in this vicinity. I guess this kid had the kahunas, the perspective, and sense of community responsibility to report it. So nice they caught to lil mongrels. I hope they don;t just get turned loose to make this kid wish he didn’t report it.

    • Ming the Merciless

      South Reston, land of shopcrasting, ultraviolence, and the old “surprise visit”…

      • Chuck Morningwood

        I sure could do with a nice glass of Moloko Volocet.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    Somebody needs to tell those thugs that and “8 car train” does not constitute a “get away car”.

  • cosmo

    Curious about the TV stolen from a business. Did someone walk out of the Wing Factory with flat-screen TV without getting noticed?

  • Melissa Berkemeier Romano

    Kids stealing from kids likely means that it was a targeted attack and not a random event. It’s unfortunate, however, that the identity of minors will be kept confidential–it would be great if police could allow the owners of the businesses robbed at Lake Anne over the past few weeks to identify whether or not these were the same teenage boys.

    Breaking news…just released suspect(s) ID’s https://youtu.be/YWordSwDzLc

  • susie

    Have you seen what’s happening to the former great FCPS? Living in denial is a liberal trait.

    • Richard

      Good liberals would fully-fund Fairfax County Public Schools.

      • Mike M

        Good Liberals would triple the budget and get no change and then request more money.

  • taffytoo

    sad what is happening…glad these hoodlums got caught ..kudos to the police..

  • Southside

    There’s plenty of crime around Reston Town Center as well, the minor crimes happen all over the Reston area. But every time a crime happens in South Reston, the xenophobes come out of the woodwork. You should be ashamed, it’s not ok to stereotype black youths, Muslims or any other types of people slightly different than you. Reston will always be an inclusive community full of diversity.
