This Week in Crime: This is starting to get old

Either there's one really prolific ne'er do well out there, or we're in the throes of another MAJOR CRIME WAVE requiring the indiscriminate use of all caps in blog posts. Either way, there was another armed robbery/burglary attempt on Sycamore Valley Drive, across Reston Parkway from the Town Center, on Wednesday.

Police are investigating an attempted burglary that occurred on Wednesday, January 14 in the 1800 block of Sycamore Valley Drive in Reston. Around 6 a.m. a 29-year-old woman was leaving her apartment when she was surprised by a man at her door. The suspect brandished a gun and tried to force his way into her apartment. The victim fought back and was able to shut her door, locking the suspect outside. The victim did not require medical treatment.

The suspect was described as black, about 6 feet tall and 190 pounds with a thin build. He was wearing athletic-type, dark pants, a gray jacket and a black ski cap that covered his face.
Wow. Between the bank robberies and the robberies, it's getting to be a busy January out there.
