A man with a gun robbed two woman this morning in Sterling, VA.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two separate incidents that are believed to be related where a male suspect brandished a firearm at two women.
Deputies first responded to the 46500 block of Lynnhaven Square in Sterling, VA, around 6:15AM Sunday for a report of a female victim who was approached by an unknown Black 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 suspect was described as a light skinned Black male, approximately 5’8” tall, with a medium build and was described as being in his mid-to-late 20’s. He was wearing a dark hoodie that was concealing his face. The suspect was possibly driving a small burgundy or red colored vehicle.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is currently working with agencies in neighboring jurisdictions to determine if they had recent similar cases.
