This Week in Crime: Attempted Mugging in Fake Downtown, Plus Maybe Someone Really Wanted to Watch the VP Debate

Here we were, making fun of a couple of suburban kidz who made a YouTube video of the mean streets of Reston's Fake Downtown. Seems like we spoke too soon.

Two men allegedly attempted to rob a 25-year-old Reston-area man at about 1 a.m. Sunday. The man reportedly exited the Metro bus at Bluemont Parkway and two other men followed him off the bus. As he crossed the street in Reston Town Center, the two men assaulted him and demanded his money and property. The man broke free, refused to comply and continued walking. The men fled the area on foot and no injuries were reported.
And then there's this:
Fifteen flat-screen televisions were reported stolen from a residence in the 1000 block of Aziza Court.
Fifteen TVs in one house? We know the McMansions get pretty big in that neck of the woods (some even have four-side brick!), but that's still.... wow.
