The Apple Store in Tysons Corner Mall was robbed Thursday afternoon, according to Fairfax County police.
The police reported: Police were contacted by an Apple Store (Tysons Corner) employee shortly before 3 p.m. on March 15. The caller indicated that three black females (possibly in early 20’s) were observed in the store and were seen leaving the store with an iPhone that had been on display.
Store security followed the suspects and approached two of them in the outside parking lot of the LL Bean Store. A third suspect approached from behind and allegedly pushed the security person into a pole.
The three then fled the scene and drove away in an Impala. FCPD officers nearby followed the vehicle but lost it due to heavy afternoon traffic. There were no injuries.
The investigation continues.
The new Ipad went on sale at the Apple store this weekend. Police reported no incidents.
