A 23-year-old man was robbed of his rental car key by two people in the 1200 block of N. Henry Street on Friday, Dec. 9.

The Alexandria Police Department said that the victim, who is not a city resident, was sitting in his rental car at around 4 a.m. when approached by a man and a woman. The pair implied that they had a weapon and demanded that the victim hand over his personal items.

“They demanded more stuff, but all they ended up with was a rental car key before running off,” Alexandria Police public information officer Marcel Bassett said. “It was reported that the suspects motioned as though they had a weapon, but no weapon was confirmed or seen.”

The victim was not injured and no arrests have been made.

The incident occurred near The Grayson apartment complex (1200 N. Henry Street), and across the street from the Powhatan Park Tennis Court (1010 Douglas Street).

Anyone with information can contact the APD non-emergency number at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
