The Fairfax County Police Department says a “group of men” were involved in an altercation Wednesday evening on South Lakes Drive.

According to the FCPD, the group assaulted a 19-year-old man at about 7:10 p.m. in the 11800 block of South Lakes Drive. Two other men then attempted to intervene, police say, and they were also assaulted. All victims sustained minor injuries.

Police say the suspects are a group of black men in their 20s, all between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10.

Anyone with information about this incident should call 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or text “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637).

    Do we have a description of the victims, so that we know if this was a hate crime or not?

    • South Lakes Larry

      Hate has no home in Reston so I can assure you this wasn’t a hate crime.

      • Mike M

        Well, unfortunately Larry, not everyone has self-declared with a sign in their front yard. So, naturally, while those who self-declare couldn’t possibly be haters, those who do not absolutely must be.

        • South Lakes Larry

          But Mike,
          That doesn’t fit my ultra progressive liberal agenda. What am I to do???

          • The Constitutionalist

            Put up a sign, duh!

          • Reston Realist

            Exactly! I know where you can find one, cheap.

          • Mike M

            Take the zealots’ route. Appeal to Reston Now to have my deplorable hate facts censored. Odds of success are about 5 – 10%.

        • Meggers

          I find those signs hateful.

          • Mike M

            I concur with your finding.

            Got relevance? Go away!

      • Meggers

        LOL…Those signs are ‘Fake News’!

    • No Hate

      No it was just a diverse group of vibrants diversely and vibrantly celebrating their vibrant diversity the way they usually do. Diversity Is Strength, yay!

      • RestonAssurance

        The suspects are a group of black men in their 20s so I’d say these thugs weren’t a diverse group.

        • The Constitutionalist

          Sarcasm has wings.

          • Wings!!

            Wings!! here! None of this would have happened if Reston had a Hooters.

    • Meggers

      Because most people violently attack each other out of love, Anonymous? Why does everything have to have a P.C. tag?

  • Why do you bother?

    black men between 5’7″ and 5’10”

    Glad they narrowed that down for us….

    • The Constitutionalist

      They’re not allowed to go further into describing them without being called racist bigot africanamaricanophobe white supremacists or some such. I think they’re learning to be inclusive and sensitive in their descriptions of criminals. Wouldn’t want to hurt anyone’s feewings.

      • Why do you bother?

        That makes no sense. They’ve been described as black. How about clothing? facial hair?

        • The Constitutionalist

          Stop being racist.

  • Cappucino & Groupthink

    As bad as it may seem “the crime” and related group toss just a bunch of guys experiencing youth, hormonal changes and the lack of frontal lobes (or under developed). Good thing LE contained it.

    Persobally I find the blatant racism in the comment section much more disgusting, these are grown men? From what it appears the KKK is alive and well in Reston lol.

    • Huh

      It’s really odd how certain groups of people are more affected by “hormonal changes and the lack of frontal lobes” than others. Oh wait it’s rayciss to notice that, so sorry.

    • Mike M

      Yeah, we all committed assault in our youth, so it’s OK. Oh! Wait a minute! That’s BS.

    • Meggers

      “Blatant Racism” “KKK” no over reaction there or ridiculous labeling there, ‘C&G’. You want to give those poor testosterone filled boys a pass? I guess you are okay with menopausal women assaulting each other on the sidewalk over misplace tupperware as well then, right? After all, it’s just a hormone thing. SMH

      • Have a weekend

        If you really serious i have some white bath robes.

  • lukeinva

    There isn’t a more snarky group of people than the people of Reston
