Alexandria Police say string of 7-Eleven robberies are connected

Alexandria Police say that a string of robberies from 7-Eleven convenience stores in the city and in Fairfax County are connected.

The most recent incident occurred just before midnight on August 19 at the 7-Eleven at 1025 W. Glebe Road. The clerk told police that the male suspect was buying a Black & Mild cigar. He handed over cash, but when the register opened he pushed the clerk away, “lunged” over the counter and stole about $30 in cash, police said in a search warrant.

The suspect, a Black male in his 50s, was bald, wore a white cloth face mask, a red T-shirt, blue jeans, black sneakers and a gold-colored bracelet on his wrist. He has not been arrested.

Police believe the suspect is also responsible for robbing two 7-Elevens in the Alexandria area of Fairfax County.

Just after midnight on June 21, the suspect walked into the 7-Eleven at 3100 Lockheed Boulevard and asked for a Black & Mild from the clerk.

Police reported that, “as the clerk opened the register to process the transaction, the offender leaps over the counter assaulting the clerk and then removes cash from the register and flees.”

Another identical robbery was reported five hours later at the 7-Eleven at 2305 Huntington Avenue.
