This Week in Crime: 7-11 Robbed on, well, Rt. 7

For once, it wasn't the Soapstone or Sunset Hills 7-11s that were the target of a late-night armed robbery.

A 26-year-old Great Falls-area woman working at the 7-Eleven store, 10508 Leesburg Pike, was robbed at gunpoint on Tuesday, August 11 around 2:30 a.m. Two men entered the store; one produced a handgun and demanded money. The victim complied, while the second suspect grabbed cigarettes and other items. Both men fled; no one was injured.

Both suspects were described as Hispanic and around 5 feet 6 inches tall. Both men were wearing solid black clothing and bandanas covering their faces and hair.


  1. Fairfax county needs to have the Prince William county immigration laws.
    Hey, am latino and am supporting those laws.

    I never thought that I would say this but Fairfax County should follow the example of our enlightened brothers and sisters in Prince William County.

  3. Isn't that a Great Falls crime? If you want to live on the north side of 7 and say you are in Great Falls, not Reston (technically the northern suburbs of Reston) then you have to take your crimes, too.
