Crime Roundup: Herndon Man Arrested in Sterling 7-Eleven Robbery Case

A Herndon man was charged in connection with the April 25 robbery of a 7-Eleven on Sugarland Drive in Sterling.

Abdul Abid, 25, was arrested on Friday, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s office. The first suspect, Zian Rehman, 19, was arrested on May 2.

Police believe one of the suspects pushed an employee on the front counter of the store toward the cash register and commanded the victim to open the register. One suspect took cash from the register while the other took money from the victim’s wallet, authorities said.

The men threatened the employee, but no weapons were used during the robbery.

Both men were charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, grand larceny and wearing a mask in public. They are being held without bond.
