Two Fairfax robberies could be linked, police say
Fairfax Police believe two robberies that took place near each other at almost the same time on May 8 might be related.
At 11:42 p.m., two males approached another near Cattail Lane and Summer Pond Drive. After producing a gun, police said in a Monday press release, the suspects fled without getting anything when the victim refused to give them money.
Perhaps two minutes later, police said, police responded to a report of another robbery nearby at in the 14300 block of Summer Tree Road.
Two males approached a man as he got out of his car, pointed a gun at him and demanded money, police said. He refused, and they took his mobile phone and fled.
In the first case, a suspect was described as white or Hispanic, perhaps 19 years old, and 5 ft. 7 in. or 5 ft. 8 in. He weighed 195 or 200 pounds, police said, and was wearing a gray and black hoodie with horizontal stripes.
In the second case, the suspects were described as "black and young," around 5 ft. 7 in. tall and 140 to 150 points.
Police ask that anyone with information about either incident call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, contact them online, text “TIP187” and a message to CRIMES/274637 or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
