The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office says it is investigating an attempted robbery and robbery in the Sterling.

Around 1:53 p.m. Saturday, deputies responded to the area of 22300 block of S. Sterling Boulevard where a third-party witness reported seeing several unknown males involved in an altercation possibly involving a weapon, according to LCSO. It was determined an adult male and his son were leaving a business when they were confronted by two suspects in a parking lot.

The suspects demanded cash, and one of the suspects brandished what appeared to be a box cuter. The child began to scream, and the suspects fled the area.

Prior to the incident, a teenager was confronted by the same suspects in the same area of the shopping center, according to LCSO. In that incident, one of the suspects displayed a possible firearm in his waistband and demanded money. The suspects took a small amount of cash from the victim.

LCSO deputies responding to the scene established a perimeter in the area. A search was conducted but no suspects were located.

The suspects were both described as black males in their late teens to early 20s, approximately 5’8” tall. One suspect was wearing a green jacket and had a medium to heavy build and was unshaven. The second suspect, at the time of the incident, was wearing a dark vest with a light grey long-sleeve hooded sweatshirt underneath.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact Detective M. Grimsley of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475. You can also submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app.


So, not a good idea to go to Harbor Freight or CVS unless you are packing?
