From Fairfax County police. Based on the address and description of the crime, this occurred at the McDonalds restaurant in the Fair Lakes shopping center.
ASSAULT, 12700 block of Shoppes Lane, 8/29/12, 2:20 a.m. Two apparently intoxicated individuals arrived at the restaurant and banged on the door. An employee open the door to tell them the dining room was closed and they could go through the drive-thru, was assaulted by both suspects. They fled and the victim was not seriously injured.
Could this incident be related to this one? This occurred near the Hyatt Dulles. From Fairfax County police:
INDECENT EXPOSURE, Sunrise Valley Drive/Sayward Boulevard, 8/28/12, 7:20 p.m. The adult female victim was walking along Sunrise Valley Drive when the suspect stopped in a vehicle. He asked her a question while allegedly exposing himself. Bilal Awan, 19, of Herndon, was charged with indecent exposure.
ASSAULT, 2100 block of Centreville Road, 8/24/12, 1:50 p.m. Officers were called to a possible robbery. They learned that the suspect allegedly yelled at the victim and cut him with a knife. The suspect fled. The victim was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Since Oak Hill is unincorporated, any new bike paths built will be done by the county. Since Herndon is a town, they don’t have to wait for county approval. If you are a bicyclist, you might be interested in their plan for expanded paths, published in The Connection newspapers.
THE APPROVED RESOLUTION includes 16 different changes, which includes extensions of two trails to and from the W and OD trail, additional bike lanes on sections of Monroe Street and Elden Street and a cycle track on Herndon Parkway between Van Buren Street and Spring Street.
It also calls for fifteen different “future on-road bicycle facilities” at various locations. Elizabeth Gilleran, director of community development for the town, said that these would most likely be sharrows, a shared-lane marking that would indicate to drivers that cyclists may be present.
