Just about every day police get called to at least one reported shoplifting at the Pentagon City mall. Often, police make several trips to the mall in any given day. Security personnel, it seems, are extraordinarily skilled at catching thieves.
But the guards aren’t quite as used to suspects turning violent. Thus this item in this week’s Arlington County Police Department crime report is noteworthy:
ROBBERY 03/27/10, 1400 block of S. Hayes Street. On March 27 at 3 pm, two suspects stole items from a department store. When they were stopped by security, they assaulted the guard and implied that they had a knife. The suspects were both African American males in their 40’s. The first suspect was 5’8”-5’9”, 175 lbs, and was wearing tan pants, a navy hooded sweatshirt and black and white sneakers. The second suspect was 5’10”, 200 lbs. wearing dark blue jeans and a black peacoat.
The rest of the report, including a death investigation we reported on last week, after the jump.
