Man Robbed in the Franconia Area

Beulah Street & Flat Rock Road: A 22-year-old Woodbridge-area man was robbed in the early hours of Saturday, February 18.  Around 12:30 a.m., the man was dropping friends off near the intersection of Beulah Street and Flat Rock Road.  While at the location, four males approached the car and displayed a gun.  They took the victim’s cellular phone and his cash then hit him in the face with the gun.  The suspects fled in a car.  The victim drove to a friend’s house and then drove himself to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he received treatment for his injuries.  The suspects were described as black, between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall.  All four appeared to be in their twenties.  The vehicle was described as an older-model four-door Cadillac.  It was gold in color with dark tinted windows and may have had Maryland tags.
