Juvenile apprehended for robbery with fake handgun in Braddock area

An Alexandria juvenile was apprehended and transported to the Northern Virginia Juvenile Detention Center after allegedly robbing another juvenile of $8 with a fake handgun.

The incident, which occurred at around 7:15 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 12., was reported to police by the victim’s parent. The parent reported that one juvenile held a gun on the victim while the other took $8 and “attempted to take the victim’s shoes and coat,” police said in a search warrant affidavit.

“It was investigated and discovered that all parties involved in this incident were juveniles who’ve interacted with each other in the past,” Alexandria Police spokesman Marcel Bassett told ALXnow

The victim was not injured.

Police found the suspect at home, and after being given Miranda warnings admitted to stealing the $8 with a replica handgun described as a Glock; with a blue slide,” police said in the warrant.
