Woman Robbed by Man With Gun Along Lee Highway

A man with a gun robbed a woman along Lee Highway late Sunday night.

The robbery happened around 11:30 p.m., near the intersection of the soon-to-be-renamed road and N. Columbus Street — across the street from the McDonald’s.

“As the victim was entering her office space, the suspect approached from behind and brandished a firearm towards her,” Arlington County police said in a crime report. “He forced the victim to remove her jewelry before entering her office space. At that time, the victim was able to run from the scene. It was later determined that the suspect rummaged through the space and stole cash.”

There were no reports of injuries.

Police searched the area but could not locate the suspect, who was only described as a man wearing black clothing.
