Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, Release:

Detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office have released a composite sketch of a suspect believed to be involved in four armed robberies in the Sterling, Virginia area, the most recent being last night.

Deputies responded to the area of Stanford Square on February 14th where a female reported she was walking back to her apartment when an unknown subject approached her and brandished a firearm. The suspect demanded her wallet and told her to remove her jacket. The victim screamed and the suspect fled the area. The victim went to her apartment and later contacted authorities.

A similar case was reported last weekend on February 9th when a Sterling woman was returning to her apartment and was approached by an unknown male at her apartment door on Stanford Square. The suspect brandished a firearm and demanded the victim's wallet. A ground and aerial search was conducted but no suspect was located.

The suspect was described as a male with a medium complexion and in his 20's. A composite sketch of this suspect was developed from the February 9th armed robbery.

These cases are possibly related to two other reports of armed robbery that occurred in December 2013.

Loudoun Deputies responded to the 46500 block of Lynnhaven Square in Sterling, VA, around 6:15AM December 29th for a report of a female victim who was approached by an unknown male. The suspect brandished a firearm and demanded the female drop several items and remove some clothing. The female then ran into her home leaving her belongings behind. A purse was reported missing by the victim.

A short time later a second incident was reported in 10200 block of Mckean Court. The suspect approached a female who was unloading groceries. The suspect brandished a firearm and pointed the weapon at her. The female then screamed and the suspect fled the area. Nothing was reported taken.

The suspect in those cases was described as a light skinned Black male, approximately 5’8” tall, with a medium build and was described as being in his mid-to-late 20’s. He was wearing a dark hoodie that was concealing his face. The suspect was possibly driving a small burgundy or red colored vehicle.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is currently working with agencies in neighboring jurisdictions to determine if they had recent similar cases.

If you were a witness to any of these incidents and have not spoken to authorities, or if you have any information regarding the possible identity of the suspect, you are asked to immediately call the LoudounCounty Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-0475.
