The Fairfax County Police Department reports a couple of robberies happened in weekend in the Bailey’s Crossroads area, and there was a police pursuit in Seven Corners.
A 20-year-old man was walking alone on the 3400 block of Glen Carlyn Drive at about 10:17 p.m. on Dec. 19, when another man approached, punched him, knocked him to the ground, and took his wallet. The victim sustained minor injuries. The suspect fled on foot. He was described as black, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, with dreadlocks, and was wearing all-black clothing.
The victim sustained minor injuries. The suspect was described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, and around 140 pounds. He was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt, a gray beanie, and blue jeans. The driver of the SUV was described as a Hispanic female, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and around 130 pounds, with red hair. She was wearing gold stud earrings and black pants.
On Dec. 20, an officer observed a Chevrolet Cruz being driven in a reckless manner at about 11:10 p.m. by the Route 50/Patrick Henry Drive intersection. The officer attempted a traffic stop, but the Cruze failed to stop and there was a brief pursuit that ended at the Arlington County line.
A short time later, officers from the Arlington County Police Department located the vehicle stopped in the roadway, apparently out of gas. The driver Shayla Perkins, 25, of Washington, D.C., fled on foot, leaving her husband and two children in the vehicle. She was quickly apprehended and was charged with driving while intoxicated with a child passenger, speed to elude, and refusal to submit to a breath test.
