Deputies established a perimeter and searched the area but did not locate the suspect.


The second robbery happened Tuesday about 6:45 p.m. in the Aldie area.

The victim was sitting in his car at Everfield Drive and Lavender Valley Court a man approached and asked if he had any jumper cables.

The man then brandished a firearm and struck the victim with his hand. A second suspect entered the passenger side of the victim’s vehicle and stole electronics and a small amount of cash from the car.
