A 59-year-old Fairfax woman was approached in the Tyson’s Galleria parking lot of Neiman Marcus by a young woman who claimed she was out of gas and needed a ride to a station, police said.

The victim invited the woman into her vehicle but as she drove toward Route 123 the suspect produced a knife and told the driver to get out of the vehicle. The victim was left at the intersection of Old Courthouse Road and Route 123, police said.
