This Last Week Some Time Ago in Crime: Attempted Dognapping Foiled

Another inopportune evening stroll, another crime committed. Only this one has, as they say in the movies, an odd twist:

At about 9 p.m. Aug. 24, a 24-year-old Reston woman was reportedly robbed while walking her dog in the 12000 block of Greywing Square. She was allegedly approached from behind by a man who wrapped his arms around her, grabbed her dog by its leash and ran away with the dog. Responding officers heard the dispatch for the incident and quickly located the man, who was positively identified. The Reston man was arrested and transported to the Fairfax County jail and charged with robbery and abduction. The woman was not seriously injured and the dog was returned unharmed.
We've said it before, we'll say it again: Everyone loves puppies.

This is something like the 97th time Greywing Square has been mentioned in these postings. After this most recent attempted petnapping, we're tempted say it must be --ahem! -- going to the dogs, but that would be lame, even by the (very) low standards of this blog.
