A 7-Eleven in the Huntington area was robbed overnight, according to today’s Fairfax County Police blotter.

A man with his face covered entered the store around 1:20 a.m. and pulled a gun on the employees on duty, police said. He ordered the employees to give him money, which they did, and then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No injuries were reported by police.

That 7-Eleven, located less than a block from Route 1  at 2405 Fairhaven Avenue, has been a frequent target of robbers. It was held up twice in the span of a week last June, and also robbed in August 2015.
