A 16-year-old male was beaten up and robbed by a gang of five teenagers in the Bradlee Shopping Center on (Thursday) April 28, according to Alexandria Police.
The victim was jumped and robbed of cash by a gang of five male juveniles. The incident occurred at around 3 p.m. as the victim walked on the sidewalk between 3672 and 3676 King Street in the shopping center, according to police.
“Money was taken from the victim, but due to a witness intervening the money was recovered at the scene,” Alexandria Police spokesman Marcel Bassett said.
The incident follows the September 21, 2021, shooting of a juvenile at a nearby McDonald’s, which is a short distance from Alexandria City High School. A juvenile was arrested at the restaurant a month later after a fight where a man was injured.
No arrests have been made, and the relationship between the victim and suspects is uncertain, police said.
Anyone with information on the robbery is urged to call the Alexandria Police Department at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
