The Huntington Avenue 7-Eleven was robbed at gunpoint early Sunday morning by two men, the Fairfax County Police Department said Monday.
The police said that around 5 a.m. two men entered the 7-Eleven at 2305 Huntington Avenue (see map) and announced they were robbing the store. One the men then showed the clerk a weapon and demanded cash, according to police.
The other man stole the clerk’s cell phone and keys before the pair fled in a light-colored Honda minivan, police said.
One of the robbers was described as being a black man in his 20s, “6 feet tall, medium build, carrying a handgun, wearing a gray sweatshirt, black pants and white gloves,” police said.
The other robber was described as a black man, 20s, 5 foot 10 inches tall, “thin build wearing a black hoodie, black bandana and gray pants.”
The 7-Eleven robbery was the second time in less than a week that a store in the chain had been robbed. A sole suspect robbed a 7-Eleven on North Kings Highway in Penn Daw on Wednesday.
