Last night at approximately 9:25 PM a male was sitting in his car on the 800 block of Westover.  He was approached by a black male suspect who asked him for a cigarette.  Then a second black male suspect approached with an object in his hand that had a laser that the victim believed to be a gun.  He was ordered out of the car and his phone wallet and vehicle were taken.

Good morning,

This morning at 0400 a male implied to the clerk at Walgreens that he had a gun and demanded money. When refused, he grabbed several packs of cigarettes and fled on foot down 21st St toward Hampton Blvd.  ethnicity of the male could not be determined.

from Jacob Medley, our Community Resource Officer;

Yesterday {Monday} at approximately 4:30 PM a female walked into the bank at 2000 Colonial Ave and began screaming at the staff.  As the staff retreated to the back she followed demanding $20,000 in a brief case.  Street units were able to take the suspect into custody on scene without incident.

At the last GNL meeting, Jacob Medley, our Community Resource Officer providing a warning about a Mr Ortiz, who had in the past operated a business in our area doing yard and house work, e.g. gutter clean-out and repairs.  More recently however, Mr Ortiz was operating without a license, though he would state that he had done work for neighbors in the area.  More importantly, he and his accomplice had been acting very aggressively with people who did answer their doors. There was also concern that these two may have been involved in stealing of metal, (esp. copper) gutters and drainpipes.

As you will see below, Jacob reports that Mr. Ortiz has been arrested in Larchmont.  However, the risk remains that unlicensed persons may solicit work around your home.  Be aware and be careful.

From Jacob Medley,  20 Jul 2015:

it has been brought to my attention that Mr Ortiz was arrested on outstanding warrants from Va Bch Saturday evening in Larchmont.  Him and two other individuals were knocking on doors soliciting to do yard and house work using false names.  They parked a teal colored Toyota Exho with VA tags VBP2050 in the 6100 block of Rolfe Ave and walked the neighborhood.

If anyone approaches your home trying to do work please verify they are legitimate by asking for a business license from the city, ID card or business card and company vehicles.  If those items are refused or not seen please call the non emergency number with as good a description as you can give.

Good morning,

On 7-15-15 at approximately 0120 hours officers responded to the Harris Teeter on Colonial Ave for a stabbing incident.  The victim was transported to the hospital with life threatening wounds.  The suspect was arrested on scene.  The two were known to each other and this does not constitute a threat with the neighborhood.
