Stabbing, robbery under investigation in Alexandria neighborhood

Crime scene investigators from the Fairfax County Police Department have roped off the edge of the parking lot and a grassy area near the Meadow Woods apartment complex. 

Police are still gathering details after they believe a man and a woman stole property and stabbed the victim around 6:30 p.m. Thursday evening in the 7100 block of Mint Place.

Some people who live in this community are too scared to talk on camera, fearing retaliation. But FOX 5 spoke to one man who lives across the street, and he’s sick and tired of crime.

"We are very disappointed. I mean, this is definitely a nice neighborhood but in the past couple of years, it's gotten worse and worse.
