Four charged in armed robbery in Annandale

Fairfax County police officers arrested four men for armed robbery at the Little River Plaza Shopping Center in Annandale last night.

According to a news release from the Mason Police Distinct, the men, all from Prince Georges County, Md., were in the process of robbing a 15-year-old boy at gunpoint, when the officer while on patrol in the 7400 block of Little River Turnpike, noticed a car creeping toward him with its lights turned off.

The boy had placed an online ad to sell a pair of Nike sneakers and had scheduled to meet a prospective buyer at around 10:50 p.m. The teen was a passenger in the vehicle and signaled his distress to the officer. The officer, along with back-ups, enacted a high-risk stop.

The four suspects, Marion Kenneth Allen Jr., 22; Cye Adam Penn, 22; Bryant Robinson, 19; and Xavier Hall, 22, were taken into custody and were charged with robbery, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, and abduction.

The police remind buyers and sellers using online services to proceed with caution. They should meet during daylight hours, never alone, and in a public place.
