3 Robberies in Springfield
Fairfax County Police are seeking the public’s help in iden-
tifying numerous suspects involved in a series of three rob-
beries that took place within a mile of each other in the
Springfield area on Monday, Nov. 16.
According to police, at approximately 7 p.m., four men
wearing masks attempted to rob four men, ages 25, 29, 31
and 41 who were talking outside a home in the 5900 block
of Amelia St. The suspects approached the victims, one bran-
dishing a handgun, and demanded money. Two victims
struggled with two of the suspects, and one victim received
a gunshot wound to the head and the other was injured,
but not shot. The suspects then fled toward Floyd Avenue.
The shooting victim was transported to Inova Fairfax Hos-
pital and the other victim was transported to Inova
Healthplex Franconia-Springfield, both with non life-threat-
ening injuries. The other two victims fled and were not in-
Moments later, two additional robberies were reported in
the 7000 block of Rhoden Court. In one case, two men, 24
and 25, relinquished their wallets to three suspects, one of
whom brandished a gun and demanded money. In the other,
a 39-year-old woman was exiting her car when a man walked
up, pointed a gun at her and demanded her purse. He
grabbed it and fled in a vehicle waiting nearby.
“Based on the location and timing [of the robberies] and
the descriptions of the suspects, we do believe that the same
suspects are involved in all three robberies,” Officer Tawny
Wright said. Dr. Randy Lazear performing dentistry at the mission in Wise, Va.
According to police, the suspects in the Rhoden Court cases
were described as black, between the ages of 19 and 25.
They were about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 165 pounds, with
brown eyes and black hair. One had an afro hairstyle and
two had short, curly hair.
