Arlington County Police have released surveillance video from the botched armed robbery of a 7-Eleven store. The robbery attempt happened at about 3:25 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19.
An approximately 5’8″ tall white male enters the store wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a bandana over his face, while pointing a handgun at the store clerk.
A second suspect, a 5’7″ tall black male in a white v-neck t-shirt, then enters the store behind the first suspect and appears to throw a firework.
The firework made a loud bang and startled the suspects and the two men ran from the scene empty-handed. Arlington police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects.
