We’re just finding out about a brazen armed robbery in the middle of Ballston Wednesday evening.

A man held up the Quiznos in the National Science Foundation building (4201 Wilson Blvd) around 5:45 p.m., according to police and passersby. Police say the man entered the store, displayed a handgun and demanded money. He then locked the employees in the back of the store, took their cell phones and fled.

No injuries were reported.

Police describe the suspect as “an African American male in his 30’s, 5’8”-5’10”, wearing a black baseball cap, black hooded sweatshirt, black ‘fanny pack’ and jeans.”

    It’s rough on 9th street. Suicide, robbery, pavement that resembles tikrit…

    Escaped on Metro?

    Pull the tapes from the station, if they are even working.

    I believe this is the second robbery there – the first one happened maybe 3-4 years ago? I hate living in Ballston now.

    • Maria

      Because of two robberies 3 or 4 years apart?

    That kind of stuff never used to happen in Ballston. Disturbing…
