Fairfax County police are investigating a stabbing that took place Friday afternoon in the Hunters Woods Plaza.

According to a Fairfax County Police Department spokesperson, a male juvenile was stabbed on Friday. Police responded to a call at 4:43 p.m. on Friday indicating someone had been stabbed.

The victim was found in the 2300 block of the plaza with a non-life threatening wound to the upper body. He was taken to the hospital and is recovering, the spokesperson said.

Police do not have any updates on the investigation at this time. Anyone with information about crimes reported by FCPD should call 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or text “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637).

    If it’s gang related, which I have a hunch it is, then the victim probably isn’t cooperating with police. So no description would be given.

    • Fact

      Finally, someone had the guts to say it the way it is.

      Reston has a gang problem. Other jurisdictions have done their best to get a leg up on local intelligence.

      Here we mostly rely on senior citizens and tai chi practitioners.

    We need a bigger police presence. Hell, you think there would be, with a Dunkin Donuts so close by…

    • Hyphenated think tank

      I ve been to the plaza five out of seven days last week and there was police every time.

      With respect to the donuts, did you just wake up from the 60s?

    Nothing bad EVER happens at Hunters Woods because it is politically incorrect to acknowledge the problem. BUT if bad stuff DID happen there, the location of the red market on that map might be a great place to park a cop for at least an hour every evening. It is literally ground zero from what I have seen. From the edge of the bank parking lot you can see it all happening or coming and going. And, yes, Paulette! What you said.

    • Richard

      What you’re really saying is that from there you can watch poor people and minorities who are gathering. Your assumption is that they’re all criminals, which is absolutely not the case. Rarely do you actually see criminal activity. I don’t agree with ‘Realist’, but at least s/he is honest about his/her proposal.

      • Mike M

        Oh, but my politically correct friend, I HAVE seen crime. How dare you interpret my words to your political views. By the way, THIS report was about REAL CRIME that REALLY happened. It’s not about poor people and minorities. Neither was my post. You are a part of the PC denial.

        Richard, why would you bring race or class wellfare into this. No one mentioned either, just that there has been an upward trend in crime in that specific area

        • Richard

          “From the edge of the bank parking lot you can see it all happening or coming and going.”
          So, Mike M is just using his crime radar? Or is the crime at Hunters Woods so rampant that wherever he looks from the parking lot, he can see crime occurring? Don’t be naïve. His comments frequently refer to race, just obliquely enough so he can come back with his crocodile tears to claim he’s being unfairly maligned.

  • Mike M

    Imploded? Or put an old folks home there? Let’s ask Ms Hudgins!

    The password is “chum.”

  • Reston Realist

    I honestly believe that Reston has outgrown it’s need for section 8 housing. It provides no benefit to the community as a whole. If the interloping developers want to create more density, they should look at buying those properties and redevelop them into whatever the flavor of the day high-rise multifamily product.

    Bring on the comments………….

      It’s kept Hudgins and Plum in office…they bus the section 8 tenants to the polls.

      • Mike M

        It is a DNC model and it will work until we collapse.

  • Greg

    Been there, done that. It was imploded in the late 90s. The replacement is no better than its predecessor.

    have been observing troubling situations there for years. have also been approached a number of times, even though I hardly fit the description of a “potential victim.” will not let my wife go there alone anymore. called police a few times as well (non emergency number), to share my observations and suggested a friendly check. just keep your eyes open. there are similar issues at the other smaller shopping centers too. just be alert and awa
