Pizza Delivery Man, 19, Robbed at Gunpoint on Laramie Place

The following arrest information was supplied by the Fairfax County police department. It does not indicate a conviction.

Three men with a gun robbed a 19-year-old pizza delivery man in the 3800 block Laramie Place on March 3 at around 9:15 p.m., according to police.

In a separate and unrelated incident, a man fled from a police officer during a field sobriety test and later assaulted him on Richmond Highway north of the Capital Beltway, police reported. At about 2:20 a.m. on March 3, Fairfax County police stopped Quenton E. Payne, 34, of Maryland, just south of the Beltway. The suspect allegedly fled from and then assaulted the officer when he was caught. Police charged Payne with driving while intoxicated, driving on a revoked license, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, assault on a police officer and possessing an open container of alcohol. 

Also, two men with guns approached a clerk outside of a check cashing business in the 6200 block of North Kings Highway on March 7 at around 10 a.m., according to police. Police said the clerk was "unable to open the final door," so the suspects fled the scene.

One of these days these punks are going to run into someone with a carry permit who will proceed to shoot them. Instead of the cops sitting in the 7-11 parking lots maybe they ought to be practicing community policing and nip this in the bud before someone gets killed.

Not surprising that the Laramie St.incident happened. The influx of public housing units in the mt. vernon district is naturally going to lead to an increase in crime. I had a friend who lived in Sequoia 20 years ago and he said it wasn't completely safe then. i can imagine it is worse now.
