Pedestrian Robbery – 700-Block Virginia Ave

On April 14 at approximately 1:40 PM, police responded to a report of an attempted pedestrian robbery at a construction site on the 700-block of Virginia Ave.  The victim, who works for a construction company, was taking his lunch break in the front passenger seat of his pickup truck.  The victim had his seat reclined and was resting his eyes on his break when, moments later, he heard noises coming from the back of the truck, where numerous tools were stored in the truck bed and compartments on either side.  The victim exited the truck and saw a black male, approximately 5’ 8” / 230 lbs with a small dreadlocks, wearing black pants and a shirt with “Nike” in red letters.  The suspect was attempting to remove a power tool from the passenger side compartment of the truck.  The victim grabbed the tool and began struggling with the suspect.  At that time, a second suspect came from the other side of the vehicle and brandished a flat steel color 38 revolver at the victim and told him to drop the tool.  The second suspect was approximately 6’1” wearing  a hoodie with a construction vest as well as a black undershirt and blue jeans.  The victim ignored the suspect and held on to the tool.  At that time, the armed suspect told his accomplice to let it go.  Both suspects fled on foot to their vehicle without any stolen property.  The suspects’ vehicle was described as a dark charcoal grey Infiniti SUV, possible a model QX50.  The vehicle sped off from the scene fo the crime and made a right turn on Adair Ave NE.  Police took fingerprints and photographs, but no security cameras were visible in the area of the crime.
If you see someone or something suspicious please report it to the police.  When driving or out walking keep an eye out in the neighborhood, what you see and report just might prevent a crime.
Reminder:  All members call 911 first if you see a crime in progress or a suspicious person or activity, and then call the FBAC Phone.
