Police: Man Robbed By Woman Who Agreed to Give Him a Ride

Arlington County Police are looking for a woman who agreed to give a man a ride but then reportedly robbed him.

Police say an officer was flagged down by the man just after 9:30 p.m. Sunday, on the 2900 block of S. Glebe Road, in the area of the Arlington Ridge Shopping Center.

The man told police that just minutes earlier he had approached the woman in a parking lot and asked her for a ride to his home. The alleged robbery happened after she agreed and he got in.

“When the victim entered the vehicle, she requested compensation,” police said in a crime report. “As the victim pulled out his wallet, the suspect assaulted him and took an undisclosed amount of cash and other items of value from him.”

“The suspect subsequently fled the area in the vehicle,” the crime report continues. “The suspect is described as a white female, approximately 40 years old, with long brown hair. The vehicle is described as an older model gray pick-up truck. The investigation is ongoing.”

Also in the latest crime report, a wanted suspect arrested on a theft charge in Pentagon City is accused of kicking and threatening officers. More from ACPD, below after the jump.

ASSAULT ON LAW ENFORCEMENT, 2019-11220259, 1100 block of S. Joyce Street. At approximately 8:08 p.m. on November 22, police were dispatched to the report of a larceny in progress. Upon arrival, it was determined that the male suspect entered a business and allegedly began concealing merchandise in his clothing. Arriving officers, located the suspect still inside the business and took him into custody without incident. During the course of the investigation, the suspect was found to be in possession of merchandise, a knife and narcotics, and provided a false name and identifying information to officers on scene. Upon properly identifying the suspect, he was determined to have outstanding warrants from Arlington County and the United States Marshals Service. He became combative and disobeyed lawful commands from officers. While attempting to bring the suspect to a transport vehicle, he allegedly kicked officers, threatened to spit on them and attempted to bite an officer. The suspect continued acting disorderly in booking and threatened to physically harm the officers. Harvey Harris, 27, of Washington, D.C., was arrested, charged with Assault & Battery on Police (x2), Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance, Forging Public Records, Identity Theft, Obstruction of Justice and Carrying a Concealed Weapon and served with the outstanding warrants.
