The following articles were the five most-clicked links on Reston Now this past week.

  1. Police Say Woman Was Dragged Into Woods Near Tall Oaks, Man Tried To Remove Her Clothes
  2. Multiple Reports of Credit Card Skimmers Hitting Local Residents; Police Offer Advice
  3. 25 Years Ago Today: Lollapalooza at Lake Fairfax Park
  4. Congratulations to the Winners of the 2017 Best Reston Business Awards

Feel free to discuss these topics and anything else that happened locally this week. Have a great weekend!
