    I’m not buying the cellphone robbery from the 15 yr old. Who takes the time to put on a ski mask to rob a phone. A 15 year old’s phone at that. Just a thought. I think there might be more to this story.

      I believe it. It’s right in front of the Ballston Common Mall.

        That den of scoundrels, thieves and villany. Who sometimes like to stop at Panera for a tunafish sandwitch and a latte.

    Is it me or is the crime report incredibly short this week?

    a. The couple assaulting the other couple sounds like a reality show episode “The Real Housewives of Arlington County,” or a Soap Opera.
    b. Don’t be fooled – Ballston, with its proximity to metro and easy egress, has more than Arlington’s share of petty and large crimes.

    The other night I saw a strange man fitting the description of the flasher. He was lurking in the garage across from Whole Foods. I told the attendant when I was leaving. He was right on it (hope he didn’t get an eyeful).

      @Tabby: If we’ve learned anything from the PSU debacle, it is that one should CALL THE POLICE when one suspects crime is afoot, not simply tell someone in a position of authority. My guess is the parking garage attendant briefly checked the area (at most). And even if he did see the suspect, his calling the police occurred later than it would have had you called.

      • Tabby

        A. How do you know I didn’t?
        B. How would I have been able to call the police EARLIER than the attendant could have, given that I was operating a vehicle at the time.
        C. Witnessing a dodgy-looking man in a parking garage is hardly comparable to witnessing an old man raping a young boy.

        Details matter, FF.

    I was at the Carlyle with friends the night of the assault and battery. We kept wondering what was going on across the street.
