This Week Several Weeks Ago in Crime

Sometime last month, someone broke into a house. And someone else stole some stuff from an acquaintance. Here are all the salacious details:

Police were called to a home in the 1500 block of Chatham Colony Court at 12:56 p.m. Aug. 17 for a reported burglary. Officers learned that two men, 24 and 28 years old, were asleep in different areas of the home. The 28-year-old awoke when an unknown woman opened his bedroom door. The woman fled downstairs and damaged items in the home before fleeing with a laptop computer. No one was injured. The woman was described as black, with braids or dreadlocks. She was wearing an orange shirt and blue jeans.
Hey, guess what? Maybe 12:56am is a better time to commit a crime than 12:56pm. Even these clowns know that:
Police were called to the 2600 block of William Short Drive at 2:53 a.m. Aug. 15 where a woman had been reportedly robbed. At the scene, officers learned that a 21-year-old Bristow, Va., woman ran into two acquaintances at a Chantilly-area restaurant, and she later left with the two men to visit someone else. They were parked in the 2600 block of William Short Drive when one of the men reportedly demanded the woman's purse and cell phone. The man covered the woman's mouth and held her down as he took money and personal items from her purse. He then returned the purse and forced her out of the car. The men fled and the woman called police about 30 minutes later to report the incident. She did not require medical treatment.
The lesson here is clear, folks: Friends don't let friends go to Chantilly.
