Robbery Reported Along Wooded Path in Stoneview Square

An armed man robbed a purse from a woman as she and her five-year-old son walked home along a wooded path near the 11600 block of Stoneview Square yesterday at 3:20 p.m.

The incident forced Terraset Elementary School and South Lakes High School to go under “secure the building” status — a condition in which individuals are not allowed to enter or exit the building.

Police said the man was armed with a handgun and jumped out of the bushes. He took the woman’s purse, pushed both victims to the ground and ran into the woods.

The woman and her son were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Police believe the suspect is a 30- to 35-year-old black man with a mustache. He was last seen wearing a white sweater with “USA” on the front, black pants and white shoes.

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