police lineCorrection: A previous version of this story said the victim was on the W&OD Trail. That was incorrect.

A man was robbed and assaulted by three suspects on a trail near the 12100 block of Sunset Hills Road on Monday, Fairfax County Police said.

The man was walking near Sunset Hills and Town Center Parkway about 9:25 p.m. when he was approached by three men who allegedly began to assault him, police said.

The suspects took property and fled on bicycles. They were described as black. There was no further description provided.

The victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital.

A similar robbery and assault took place near the same spot in May.

In that incident, a man said he was walking on the path about 9:30 p.m. when two men pushed him to the ground, took his property and fled.

The suspects in that case had a different description. That case remains open.
