Two men tried to steal from Giant in the City of Falls Church and then assaulted an employee when confronted last Wednesday, according to the latest crime report released Tuesday.

One suspect is described as a black male in his 40’s with dreadlocks and the other is described as a black male in his 50’s, bald, with a gray beard.
In other crime, there were four hit and runs including one resulting in an arrest for DUI, someone used the patio area at Clare & Don’s for “toileting and sleeping” and a 27-year-old D.C. man was arrested for marijuana possession.
Also, a dog, described as a black and brown terrier mix, was found running free in the 1300 block of Robinson Place and then taken to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.
