Videos released in Loudoun robberies

Loudoun County investigators have released three surveillance videos they hope will help residents identify the man they say robbed an Ashburn Hair Cuttery on Tuesday.

The man entered the store around 1:45 p.m., police said, and asked for change. He drew a knife when a worker opened the cash register, stealing cash and fleeing on foot.

The first video:

The second:

The third:

The suspect was described as a white male wearing a dark striped long-sleeved shirt and a baseball hat that might have a Jim Beam logo on its front.

Police believe the same suspect may have robbed an area KFC/Taco Bell on Sept. 6 and a Hair Cuttery in Ashburn Village on Sept. 12.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Investigator M. Bush of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475.

Callers wishing to remain anonymous can call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.

Crime in Loudoun County?
You mean one lives 40 miles from the city that defines this area; and commutes 1-2 hours to go 10-25 miles; is away from their home for 12 hours per day; leaves home at like 6am to get to work at like 8am; to get home at like 8pm and still has crime in the area?

Think of it like this Morris,

If we all lived in the closer but more crime ridden counties the crime rate would be much higher than it it already is in those counties. I'll take my long commute ANY day. Fact is crime happens everywhere. SOME suburbanites do have false security in thinking "it can't or don't happen here", but they are foolish in thinking that. People live further away for other reasons than just LOWER crime rates.

How lame. Seriously, he was so out of place. Was that a chef's knife he had? I hope they catch this pansy...who robs a hair salon? Be a man and at least give yourself a challenge. Try Fort Know next time.

I agree with CyanSquirrel. This is ridiculous and this guy should try Fort Know!

To usc932000, not all closer communities are more crime ridden.

There is no way in hell this loser was going to do anything with that knife. Sorry, he would've gotten a linebacker tackle from me if I was in that store. I could smell his fear from just watching the video, that kid was terrified. Someone better show him what real life is all about. I'd be glad to if I run into him.
