— Virginia State Police say the two people suspected in an attempted armed robbery and attempted carjacking of a couple in a rest area along westbound Interstate 64 in New Kent County on Saturday might have ties to Raleigh, N.C. 

The victims told police that a man and woman approached them in the parking lot asking for help with their vehicle. While trying to help them, the man displayed a handgun and assaulted the male victim. The two fought before the robbers fled the scene. 

The victims left the rest area and stopped at a business near Route 249 and Interstate 64 after calling 911. A search of the area was conducted, but the robbers were not located.

The robbers were driving a white, 2002 Toyota Camry LE two-door vehicle, with North Carolina license plate KHL. The vehicle, which was recovered at the rest area, might have been in the Tidewater area within the past few days and have a possible connection to the Raleigh, N.C area, authorities said. 

Anyone with information about the robbers is asked to contact Virginia State Police at 804-553-3445 or the Metro-Richmond Crime Solvers at 804-780-1000. Information could be worth up to a $1,000 cash reward and is confidential.

    I agree with The Punisher, we will see alot more of this as long as "o'Bama" is in office! He will try to ride the coat tails of our fine Marines for taking Bin Laden out, but his economic stimulus has been a bigger bust than the housing market! I say good riddance!!!!
