A Woodbridge man and Burke woman are charged with recent robberies in Woodbridge.
In the first case, a 37-year-old Woodbridge man told officers at 8 a.m. on May 12 he arranged to meet a woman he didn't know in the area of Gardenview Loop and Summerland Drive, Prince William police spokesman Jonathan Perok said.
The woman was there with a man the victim didn't know, and the unknown man showed the victim a knife and "demanded the victim's money and car keys," police said.
The pair stole the victim's cell phone and money. They then left in the victim's car, a 2006 black Toyota 4-Runner, according to Perok.
Around 1 p.m., a 45-year-old Woodbridge man called police to Devils Reach Road and Carolyn Forest Drive. He told officers he was in the 13300 block of Occoquan Road and encountered a woman he didn't know.
The man got into a vehicle with the woman, police said. She drove him to the area on Devils Reach Road where a masked man, "who had been hiding in the backseat, displayed a knife and took the victim's wallet and cell phone," Perok said.
The two suspects made the man get out of the vehicle, believed to be the Toyota 4-Runner stolen earlier in the day, police said.
No injuries were reported in either case.
"On May 17th, detectives obtained surveillance photos from stores in the Woodbridge area where the suspects purchased merchandise with credit cards reported stolen during the robbery," Perok said.
Tuesday, police identified the suspects and found them both in the 12400 block of Dillingham Square, according to Perok.
"Following the investigation, both suspects were arrested and charged in connection to the robberies," Perok said.
Marcus Obrien McAllister, 31, of 13427 Pinetree Ct. in Woodbridge, was charged with three counts of credit card theft and two counts of grand larceny.
Carmina Juanita Lopez, of 6174 Coffer Woods Dr. in Burke, was charged with providing a false identification to police, forging public documents, three counts of credit card theft and two counts of grand larceny.
During a search of McAllister and Lopez, officers said they discovered drug paraphernalia on both suspects. Officers also McAllister with brass knuckles, Perok said.
While she was being processed, police said Lopez gave officers a false name. Officers found Lopez was wanted in other jurisdictions under her real name, Perok said.
Both were held without bond, and their next court date is July 31.
