(Updated at 4:30 p.m.) Local police have made an arrest in connection with the robbery of a 66-year-old woman in the vicinity of the North Shore pool.

Police arrested and charged the 38-year-old Reston resident with robbery on Wednesday (July 26).

The incident happened at 8:20 p.m. on Monday (July 24) near a Metro bus in the 11000 block of North Shore Drive.

“The victim was on a Metro bus near the Hunter Woods shopping center,” police said.

The victim reportedly left the bus, where she was conversing with the female suspect, and sat down on a bench.

Police believe the suspect sat down next to her and took her wallet.

“A physical struggle occurred between the victim and a suspect, at which time the suspect ran from the scene and was not located,” the Fairfax County Police Department said.

No injuries were reported.

The suspect is being held on no bond.

Correction: This story previously said the robbery occurred near the Hunters Woods Village Center. The police news release suggests that the victim was riding the bus near that shopping center, but the actual incident took place roughly three miles away on North Shore Drive.
