Police are investigating two apparently related cases of grand larceny at 7-Eleven stores in Vienna.
At 4 p.m. Feb. 10, a citizen reported an assault had taken place at the 7-11 at
427 Maple Avenue E. The citizen told police they observed a male and a 7-11 store employee fighting over a bag on Pine Street.
When police responded, they found two 7-11 employees, one male and one female, had pursued a white male subject after he stole a bag containing several cartons of cigarettes. During the confrontation and subsequent struggle the male employee was struck and injured.
Fairfax County EMS responded and treated the victim for minor injuries.
Police then learned that a similar event had taken place on Feb. 7 at the 7-11 store in the 500 block of Maple Avenue West, but was never reported to police.
Police are investigating both cases.
