(Updated at 3 p.m. on 7/8/2022) A man with no fixed address is facing charges for allegedly robbing a bank and a Safeway in Herndon this month.
Fairfax County police arrested the man near Reston around 2:20 p.m. yesterday (Thursday) after a roughly two-hour search that involved a helicopter, K9 unit, and the Herndon Police Department.
At approximately 12:10 p.m. yeesterday, Herndon police officers responded to a reported armed robbery of Truist Bank in the BB&T Shopping Center at 230 Herndon Parkway, Herndon police said in a news release today (Friday).
“Employees of the bank stated a black male, dressed in black clothing and wearing a face mask, approached a teller, pointed a handgun, and demanded money,” HPD said. “The teller gave approximately $2500 to the suspect, who then left on foot.”
NBC4 reported that the suspect’s shoes were left behind in “a nearby neighborhood.”
With the Fairfax County Police Department assisting, Herndon police canvassed the area until an officer located the man identified as the suspect near North Walnut Branch Road in Reston.
According to Herndon police, the officer lost sight of the suspect after “brief foot pursuit.” The man was later found “hiding in some bushes” near Sundance Court and North Walnut Branch Road west of Fairfax County Parkway.
A magistrate has charged the man with robbery and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. HPD says the investigation led police to also bring charges against the man for a robbery of Safeway at 413 Elden Street that occurred last Saturday (July 2).
“We are grateful for the assistance of our neighboring agency @FairfaxCountyPD,” the Herndon Police Department said in a tweet. “Their patrol units and specialized units assisted without hesitation. It is teamwork like this that helps keep our communities safe.”
The man is currently being held without bond at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
