Sheriff’s Office Seeks Help Identifying Second Armed Robbery Suspect

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying the second suspect involved in the June 26 armed robbery of residents inside a Lansdowne apartment.

The agency released a composite sketch of the man today that detectives believe entered the victim’s apartment in the 19000 block of Bent Tree Terrace. The victims reported two suspects knocked on the door about 9 p.m. before forcing their way into the apartment. A struggle ensued and both the suspects brandished a firearm. The suspects took multiple items from the home before fleeing the area. Detectives believe the victim’s inside the apartment were targeted.

The Sheriff’s Office has arrested one of the men they believe is involved in the robbery. Courtez X. Day, 21, of Ashburn, was charged with two counts of robbery, two counts of abduction, breaking and entering with intent to commit robbery, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

He was apprehended Wednesday and was held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.

The case remains under investigation and additional charges are likely, according to the agency.
