The Alexandria Police Department is investigating two incidents from overnight that appear to be connected, an Attempt Robbery AND a Robbery. They both involved a black male suspect who stayed his vehicle, while brandishing a gun and demanding the victim’s purse.
1st incident: Attempt Robbery in the 300 block of Yoakum Parkway. The female victim fled without handing over purse or injury.
2nd incident: Robbery in the 200 block of S. Reynolds Street. The female victim tossed her purse into the suspect’s vehicle and fled without injury.
