Man attacked with baseball bat and robbed

A man was robbed after using a bank ATM machine on Little River Turnpike by Wadsworth Court in Annandale shortly after 3:30 a.m. on Jan. 4, the Fairfax County Police Department states.

The victim was walking on the service road when he was approached by a group of six men. One of them struck him with a baseball bat, and they robbed the victim of cash and personal property.

The victim was taken to a local hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The suspects were described as Hispanic. One was believed to be in his 20s with sideburns and a full beard, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, 160 pounds, wearing a blue hoodie and gray jeans. Another suspect was believed to be in his 30s and was wearing a gray shirt and black jeans.

In another incident, a man who stopped at a 7-Eleven at 3827 George Mason Drive in Bailey’s Crossroads at about 11 a.m. on Jan. 4 left his car unlocked with the keys inside. When he came out of the store, he noticed a woman sitting in the driver’s seat of his car. When he confronted her, she closed the door and acted like she was going to drive away. The victim pulled her out of his car and she eventually walked away.

The victim reported cash missing from inside the car, and officers found the suspect, Obtissem Quali, 30, of Arlington, nearby. Quali was arrested and charged with larceny (third or subsequent conviction), grand larceny (attempted auto theft), and possession of drug paraphernalia.

  1. It's becoming clear from these crime reports that Annandale is no longer a place to be walking around after dark. - Sparky
