Woman thwarts robbery attempt

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? Call the police, 703-691-2131.

    1. What's your point in challenging this comment?

      If a statement is factual, why are you questioning it?

    2. You're right. The assault was also approx 3000 ft from dogfishhead alehousr, obviously overindulging in IPAs might also be the issue.

    3. Just can't help yourself can you, Adam.

      One can't even state a fact without you being dismissive. You just have to attempt to make the comment into something it's not. Pathetic.

    4. You're right, can't help myself. Seems neither can you, so let's just get that out of the way first. Anyway...it is a fact, but it insinuates that the presence of the mosque is somehow related to the crime, so let's not pretend that the fact was completely benign. And since we're name calling, you're a toolbag.

    5. I don't think that statement insinuated anything other than providing a landmark to help others easily identify the location.

  2. It's getting pretty bad around here.
    Seems brazen to approach someone walking a dog.
    Pretty scary that it was early in the evening.

  3. Anonymous 5:27: the original post was very clearly a snide remark. If you don’t believe that, you’re either the original commenter feigning innocence or a naive fool. I understand Adam’s chagrin.

  4. I thought this blog forbade ad hominem attacks.

    1. That's my favorite kind of attack though. Right behind a limit break.

    Adam Goldberg, you are correct it did insinuate "Accosted by a middle eastern man, approx. 1500 ft. from Dar-Al Hijrah Islamic Center".
    Same on a previous post, a Raul Rodriguez was arrested. The citizen commented..."Was he deported?" lol WTH....SMH
