Cable worker robbed at gunpoint

Sheriff's Office: Two suspects still at large after hold-up in Stephens City-area neighborhood

By Candace Sipos -- csipos@nvdaily.com

STEPHENS CITY -- Authorities are still searching for two men who fled on foot after robbing a local cable company worker at gunpoint.

The two men robbed the worker of an undisclosed amount of currency around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 100 block of Caledon Court in Stephens City, according to Capt. John Heflin of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.

Heflin would not release the identity of the victim.

One suspect was described as black, between 20 and 30 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. He had braided hair and was wearing a black jacket with a white T-shirt underneath, and baggy-style jeans, Heflin said.

The other suspect was black, in his late teens or early 20s, about 6 feet tall and 130-150 pounds. His hair was close-cut, and he was wearing an earring and necklace with a black, puffy-style jacket, blue shirt underneath, and medium-colored jeans.

Each suspect brandished a black semiautomatic pistol during the incident, Heflin added.
State police assisted at the scene with a canine unit, which was unable to track the suspects. Officers stayed at the scene for hours interviewing people in the neighborhood to determine whether anyone saw the crime.

Officers are not sure whether this incident is linked to any other robberies, Heflin said, noting that it is still under investigation.

Investigator K.C. Bohrer, who is looking into Sunday's robbery of the Liberty gas station at 1034 Millwood Pike in Stephens City, also is handling this case.

Heflin asked that anyone with information about either incident call the Sheriff's Office at 662-6162 or the local Crime Solvers division at 665-TIPS.
