The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an assault and attempted robbery that occurred in the parking lot of the Dulles Retail Plaza in Sterling Thursday night.
The victim and his juvenile son were loading items into a vehicle outside of a store around 6:45 p.m. May 6, when a vehicle pulled up behind them. A verbal altercation ensued regarding the victim’s vehicle blocking the roadway. Two males exited the suspect vehicle, a silver passenger car, and further words were exchanged. One of the suspects brandished a firearm, demanded he give him whatever he had, and assaulted the adult male victim. The victim refused to give anything to the suspect and drove away with his juvenile son.
The suspects continued to follow the victims and at one point stopped their vehicle in front of the victim’s car in the area of Pacific Boulevard and blocked their path. The two male suspects exited their vehicle and the victim drove around the suspects and stopped at a nearby gas station to report the incident.
The adult male victim received minor injuries during the incident.
Both suspects were described as Black males, 6’1” to 6’2” with lean builds and dreadlock style hair. A female passenger in the suspect vehicle was described as a White female with long hair.
