Alexandria Police Seek Help to Identify Burglary Suspect

The Alexandria Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect in an armed burglary that occurred in the 100 block of Lynhaven Drive. 

On Wednesday, July 15, at approximately 1:00 P.M., a female resident was leaving her house and was forced back inside by two suspects.  One of the suspects was armed with a handgun.  They acted as if they were looking for somebody.  The person was not found and the suspects fled the area.  There were no injuries.

The first suspect is described as a black male, in his mid 20s, unshaven and wearing what appeared to be a United States Postal Service uniform.  He had a tattoo on the inside of his forearm that appeared to be in a script type font.  A composite of the suspect and a sample of his tattoo are available:

The second suspect is described as a black male, in his mid 20s, with medium length dreadlocks.  He was wearing a black cap, black shirt, dark blue jeans, black gloves and white Nike “Air Force” shoes.

Detectives would like to remind witnesses that they can remain anonymous.  Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective Chris Whelan at the Criminal Investigations Section of the Alexandria Police Department at 703.838.4726 or the Crime Solvers tip line at 703.838.4858. 

Rewards up to $1,000.00 can be paid for information that leads to the arrest and indictment of criminals.
