Fairfax County police detectives are investigating an armed robbery at the Blossom Spa in Seven Corners on Saturday, Oct. 10, shortly after 8 p.m.  A man entered the mom-and-pop business in the Boulevard Square Office Park at 6051 Arlington Blvd. posing as a customer, says FCPD spokesperson Roger Henriquez.

Once inside a back room, he brandished a knife at an employee. Another man then entered the shop, escorted two other employees into the room, and the suspects threatened the three women and took cash and cell phones from them. None of the victims required medical attention.

The suspects were described as black males in their early to mid-40s and 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 7 inches tall. One suspect had a skinny build and black hair. He was wearing a dark-colored jacket and a black baseball cap. The second suspect had a medium build and black hair. He was clean shaven and wore a red shirt.

There is no indication at this time that this incident is connected to other armed robberies in the area, Henriquez said.
