The Fairfax County Police Department responded to a string of robberies over a three-day period last week.
On Thursday around 2:10 a.m., two suspects were spotted breaking a display case and taking several items from a business on the 10100 block of Colvin Run Road. The business owner was alerted about the break in and called police.
In a separate incident the next day, a 14-year-old boy was assaulted after he left a party near the 800 block of Charwhit Court around 11 p.m. Two teenagers followed the teen and took property from him, police said. The suspects were charged with robbery and taken to a local juvenile detention center.
As we reported late last week, a man wearing a mask robbed the Chevon gas station on 11410 on Friday around 8:30 p.m. The suspect was armed with a gun, but no one was injured. The investigation is ongoing.
