This Week in Crime: Now the Other 7-11's Getting Robbed

For a while there. it seemed like someone tried to rob the 7-11 on Soapstone in Reston every five minutes, often with hilarious unanticipated results. Now it's the 7-11 on Sunset Hills that's been robbed.

Two employees of a 7-Eleven store were robbed on Monday, May 4 around 3 a.m. The two men, 31 and 37 years old, were stocking shelves when the two suspects entered the store, located at 11714 Sunset Hills Road. One suspect brandished a handgun and demanded money. The victims were forced behind the register; they complied with the suspects’ demands. The suspects took cash and fled from the store on foot. The victims did not require medical treatment.

The suspects were both described as black, in their 20s. The first suspect was about 6 feet 4 inches tall and 165 pounds. He was wearing a red hoodie, blue jeans, a black bandana that covered part of his face and a black jacket. The second suspect was wearing a green hoodie, blue jeans and a black bandana that covered part of his face.
Based on that description, you'd think the bandanas were intended to cover part of the robbers' faces! With a break like that, they'll be in custody in no time flat.

    Welcome to Anacostia West. Just think, in a few years, we'll only be a short hop by Metro from Anacostia East.
