Herndon Police Investigate Robbery, Stabbing in Town of Herndon

The Herndon Police Department is investigating a robbery that happened on the 500 block of Early Fall Court earlier this month.

Four suspects approached the victim at around 4:35 p.m. on August 4 and attempted to rob the individual, police said.

The suspects fled when the victim got the attention of residents outside of their home, according to the Herndon Police Department. The incident is under investigation.

HPD is also investigating an Aug. 9 stabbing on the 200 block of Elden Street.

John Patrick Murphy, 45, of Herndon, was arrested for attempting to stab someone he knew, according to HPD. He is being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center without bond.

Information about both issues was released late yesterday (Wednesday) in HPD’s weekly crime report.
