Police Investigate Two Separate Armed Robberies in Tysons

The Fairfax County Police Department is investigating two different armed robberies that took place in Tysons last week.

The first took place in the 8300 block of Greensboro Drive at 3:39 p.m. on Nov. 14. The victim was approached by a man with a knife who demanded money. The man “forcibly took a wallet from the victim before walking away from the area,” the FCPD reported in its weekly recap on Nov. 20.

The victim in that incident suffered injuries, but they were not life-threatening.

The second reported incident occurred at 2:19 a.m. on Nov. 19 in the 8600 block of Westwood Center Drive.

According to Fairfax County police, two men armed with guns forced their way into a hotel room occupied by three victims. The men assaulted one of the victims and took cash and personal property before walking away from the area.

The assaulted victim was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, police say.
