An Alexandria man was robbed at gunpoint after hanging out with a woman he met on Instagram, according to a recently released search warrant affidavit.
The incident occurred after 11 p.m. on April 11 (Tuesday) in an apartment complex in the 3800 block of Russell Road. The victim told police that he was robbed after meeting up with a woman that evening at St. Rita’s Catholic Church (3815 Russell Road).
The victim agreed to meet the woman at St. Rita’s at 9:30 p.m. and that she arrived at 10:20 p.m. — nearly an hour late. The victim told police that they decided to hang out in the hallway of an apartment building in the 3800 block of Russell Road, but were asked to leave by residents and that they then walked to a neighboring apartment building, according to the search warrant affidavit.
While walking to that second building, an unknown man walked up to the group and began talking with the woman, and then took out a gun, loaded it and allegedly pointed it at the victim, according to the search warrant affidavit.
“The female then demanded him to give her his money, so he removed $320 U.S. currency from his front jeans pocket and handed it to the unknown (male suspect),” according to the search warrant affidavit. ”
The victim told police that he met the woman on Instagram two months ago and did not know her real name. The victim provided police with an Instagram account and verified that the woman in the profile picture was the female suspect, according to the search warrant affidavit.
No arrests have been made. Anyone with information on this incident can call the Alexandria Police Department non-emergency line at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
