Video: Gunman robs Vienna 7-Eleven

By Mike McPhate

McLean police are searching for a gunman in an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven in Vienna that was captured on security cameras.

The suspect entered the Park Street store about 3:15 a.m. Sunday, pointed a gun at the counter clerk and demanded cash, police said. He complied.

The gunman then followed a second clerk into the store's office, where he beat the worker with bottles, police said. The weapon was fired during the assault, but no one was struck.

The suspect then ordered the workers to exit the store, police said, after which he fled in a vehicle.

Police describe the suspect as a 20-something, heavy-set man, between 5' 6" and 5' 9" tall with dark hair and a full beard. He wore black pants, a black baseball cap and carried a green shopping bag.

Anyone with information is asked to call 866-411-8477.

There is a 7-11 on Park across from the Cedar Lane shopping center. It is the Fairfax police who are investigating this crime. There is no such thing as a Mclean Police.
