Police Seek Info on Capital One Bank Robbery on Richmond Highway

The bank is on 6790 Richmond Highway.

Authorities are seeking information about a man who robbed a bank in the Beacon Hill area last week.

The incident took place at about 2 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26, when a man entered the Capital One bank on 6790 Richmond Highway, displayed a gun, and demanded cash.

The man fled with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured. The robber was 180 pounds, in his 20s, and less than 6 feet tall, according to authorities.

The FBI and the Fairfax County, Virginia Police Department are investigating this bank robbery and request that anyone with information call the FBI at 202-278-2000 or the Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.

What's happening at the Beacon Hill banks? Are they inviting robbery? Remember the TD series. Why is this story just getting in the Patch? Good luck catching the gunman now! BUT the important thing missing about this story unlike the famous TD bank robber is the photo of the robber! Can't believe that this bank does not have cameras!?

What about the shooting that took place on Claremont Woods on Thanksgiving. Aside from the Police Blotter posted Dec 2, there's been no information released! A person was shot, cars were damaged by bullets, just 100 feet from where my toddler was sleeping! I want information!

Oddly enough, neither the Fairfax County police nor the FBI had a photo of the robber. I checked, they posted just the wanted poster above with no picture. Unfortunately, Patch sites are running on limited resources, but I did get some information on the shooting in Claremont Woods. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital and was treated. Will post a story shortly.
