(March 7, 2014) – Detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office have released an additional composite sketch of a suspect believed to be involved in four armed robberies in the Sterling, Virginia area, the most recent being on Valentine’s Day.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office was able to develop the two sketches based on information received from two different robbery victims during the week of February 9.
The most recent robbery occurred on February 14 in the area of Stanford Square. The female victim reported she was walking back to her apartment when an unknown subject approached her and brandished a firearm. The suspect demanded her wallet and told her to remove her jacket. The victim screamed and the suspect fled the area. The victim went to her apartment and later contacted authorities.
A similar case was reported a few days earlier on February 9 when a Sterling woman was returning to her apartment and was approached by an unknown male at her apartment door on Stanford Square. The suspect brandished a firearm and demanded the victim’s wallet. A ground and aerial search was conducted but no suspect was located.
The suspect was described as a male with a medium complexion and in his 20’s.
These cases are possibly related to two other reports of armed robbery that occurred in December 2013.
Loudoun Deputies responded to the 46500 block of Lynnhaven Square in Sterling, VA, around 6:15 a.m. December 29 for a report of a female victim who was approached by an unknown male. The suspect brandished a firearm and demanded the female drop several items and remove some clothing. The female then ran into her home leaving her belongings behind. A purse was reported missing by the victim.
A short time later a second incident was reported in 10200 block of Mckean Court. The suspect approached a female who was unloading groceries. The suspect brandished a firearm and pointed the weapon at her. The female then screamed and the suspect fled the area. Nothing was reported taken.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is currently working with agencies in neighboring jurisdictions to determine if they had recent similar cases.
If you have any information regarding the possible identity of the suspect you are asked to call Detective M. Grimsley or Detective C. Cunningham of the Loudoun County Sheriffâs Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475.
