This Week in Crime: There Goes the Neighborhood

A Reston woman was the victim of a carjacking on Rt. 7.

A 52-year-old Reston woman was the victim of a carjacking at about 1:15 a.m. on Sept. 27, Fairfax County police said.

The woman was in a parking lot near the intersection of Dranesville Road and Leesburg Pike near Great Falls. She was standing next to her 2004 Toyota Corolla when an unknown man pushed her aside and took her car, police said.

The victim sustained minor injuries. Her car was later discovered abandoned in Washington, D.C., police said.

The suspect was described as Hispanic, in his late 30s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, with short hair, wearing a black T-shirt and blue jeans.
We love how this incident was described as taking place "near" Great Falls. The only crimes that happen there, after all, involve cut-through undesirables and game show hosts.
