The Alexandria Police Department arrested four teens for a robbery and assault at the Bradlee Shopping Center (3646 King Street) last month.

The victim, also a teenager, was bleeding from the face after being punched near the McDonald’s around 8:40 a.m., according to scanner traffic. The victim told police the suspect took his shoes and wallet. The victim was transported to the hospital.

“Two juvenile city residents were charged with assault and two other juvenile city residents were charged with robbery and assault,” police said in a release.

Police confirmed to ALXnow that the suspects were “in their late teens.”

The Bradlee Shopping Center McDonald’s has been a hot spot for crime, with multiple assaults and the murder of Alexandria City High School student Luis Mejia Hernandez in 2022.

Alexandria City Public Schools leadership said earlier this year they would crack down on truancy and students skipping school at the Bradlee Shopping Center, while the Alexandria Police Department said it would be increasing its presence at the shopping center after school hours.

The incident is still under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Michael Whelan via phone at 703 746 6228, email at [email protected], or call the non-emergency number at 703 746 4444.
