A 24-year-old woman walking her dog on the 6100 block of Leesburg Pike Jan. 22 was the victim of an attempted robbery, the Fairfax County Police Department reports. At about 8:30 p.m., she felt something touch her shoulder and discovered a man was holding some sort of edged weapon.
He threatened her and demanded money. The woman threw her umbrella at the suspect and he fled. She was not injured. The suspect was described as Middle Eastern, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, with a thin build. He was wearing a dark jacket, and his face was covered with a red bandanna. Got a top on this?
