Detectives Seek Help to Identify Reston Robbery Suspect

Detectives from our Major Crimes Bureau's Reston Police District are looking for assistance from the public to identify a man who may be linked to two robberies that have occurred in Reston.

A man tried to take her backpack on July 26 when he approached an adult female victim close to the 11900 block of Barrell Cooper Court in Reston. Should she refuse to part with her possessions, the man threatened to abduct her child. The male was characterized as 56 years old, Hispanic, between the ages of 20 and 25, and thinly built. Below is a composite sketch of the suspect that was made:

On August 9, two guys approached two adult ladies who were strolling along a trail close to the 12000 block of Greywing Square. After giving the women pepper spray, the first man grabbed one of their purses and fled. The first male was described as being tall, Hispanic, and about 19 years old. He had dark hair and chin-length facial hair. Below is a composite sketch of this individual that was made:

The second individual fit the description of a short, Hispanic man, perhaps sixteen years old, and dressed in red shorts and a white t-shirt. The second suspect does not have a composite sketch available.

Investigators think the suspect in the composite sketches is the same.
