The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is looking for two suspects who were involved in two robberies in Sterling on Saturday afternoon.
According to the report, deputies were called to the 22300 block of South Sterling Boulevard at 1:53 p.m. Dec. 23, where a witness reported seeing several men involved in an altercation, possibly involving a weapon. They determined man and his son were leaving a business when they were confronted by two suspects in a parking lot. One of the attackers threatened them with a weapon, possibly a box cutter, and demanded cash. When the child screamed, the suspects fled.
Deputies learned that prior to that case, a teenager was confronted by the same suspects in the same area of the shopping center. One of the men may have displayed a firearm in his waistband and demanded money. They took a small amount of cash from the victim.
The area was searched, but the suspects were not found.
They are described as black males in their late teens to early 20s, approximately 5-feet, 8-inches tall. One suspect was wearing a green jacket and had a medium to heavy build and was unshaven. The second suspect was wearing a dark vest with a light grey long-sleeve hooded sweatshirt underneath at the time of the incident.
Anyone with any information regarding this case is asked to contact Detective M. Grimsley at 703-777-0475. You may also submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app.
