ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

It’s been a big week for crime and public safety issues in Alexandria.

There were several arrests and a few notable cases where there weren’t arrests: like when a child was struck in a crash and no arrests made after another fatal crash.

On the more positive side, things are coming along in Potomac Yard and a new development was announced in the West End.
