This Week in Crime: Robberies and racial slurs, or just another week in paradise

Apparently, there are parts of Colts Neck Road where none shall pass.

A 28-year-old Reston man was reportedly walking down Colts Neck Road near Winterthur Lane at about 9:30 p.m. Nov. 6 when he saw two other men standing along the sidewalk ahead of him. When he approached the men, they confronted him and would not allow him to pass. The men reportedly grabbed him, took his cellular phone and an undisclosed amount of cash and fled. Police responded to the incident and no injuries were reported. One of the men was described as Hispanic, about 20 years old, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 200 pounds. He had short, black hair and wore a dark shirt and blue jeans. The second man was described as about 20 years old, 5 feet, 10 inches tall and 150 pounds. He wore a dark, hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
Funny, we would have thought they were bridge trolls. Meanwhile, on Freetown Drive, someone spraypainted graffiti with words more akin to a message board than a garage door in a planned community:
Police responded to a report of graffiti at a home in the 2400 block of Freetown Drive on Nov. 11. At about 3:30 a.m., a man walking his dog heard noises near a neighbor's home and saw two people moving near a garage door. The neighbor then noticed that racial slurs and symbols had been spray painted on the door. Officers notified the homeowner, a 72-year-old Reston man, of the incident.
Now there's a pleasant surprise at 3:30 in the morning.
