This Week A While Back in Crime: Even Lower than a DRB member looking at pastel paint swatches

While we were fixated on the various and sundry bank robberies and attempted assaults that have plagued Reston this month, it turns out we missed a couple of other incidents -- and the perpertrators are the lowest of the low, what with their robbing mothers with toddlers and senior citizens.

Woman Robbed While Walking With Child, 2
A 19-year-old Reston woman and her 2-year-old son were walking from a nearby store to an apartment in the 11800 block of Breton Court on Jan. 3 when they were reportedly robbed. At about 6:35 p.m. the woman was approaching the building and was grabbed from behind by a man who took her purse and fled on foot. No injuries were reported. The man was described as Hispanic, about 30 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 160 pounds with black hair. He wore a brown, hooded jacket, blue jeans and a blue baseball cap.

Man Assaults Woman, 65, Steals Purse
A 65-year-old Reston woman was robbed on Jan. 9 when she was walking in the 1700 block of Wainwright Drive. A man approached the woman and grabbed her from behind. He knocked her to the ground, took her purse and fled on foot. The suspect was described as white, about 25 years old, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and 160 pounds with brown eyes. He wore a black, hooded sweatshirt and a black ski mask with white trim.
Nice. Why not just mug a 65-year-old woman in a wheelchair strolling a baby in a walker and be done with it?
