The City of Falls Church Police Department is seeking the public’s help to identify suspects linked to an assault and robbery at a lens and eyewear store.
Shortly before 11:30 a.m. yesterday (Thursday), three males “immediately began collecting displayed eyeglass frames in an apparent theft” at For Eyes Optical (444 W. Broad Street), police said.
Police said one employee at the store was assaulted and taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspects fled across W. Broad Street and drove off in a vehicle, police said.
“The suspects are described as three black males, all over 6′ tall, wearing dark sunglasses, two wearing black hoodies, and one wearing a bright orange jacket,” police said. “The vehicle is an early 2000’s blue/green sedan that is missing a passenger hubcap.”
Anyone with information can contact Falls Church police at 703-248-5053.
“There are no surveillance photos or video available at this time,” police said.
