The recent knife point robberies in the Vista Woods and Foxwood subdivisions have resulted in an arrest due to the hard work of the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office deputies and detectives.

On June 2nd at approximately 8:37 p.m., deputies responded to an attempted robbery on Foxwood Drive. The victim was able to flee from the suspect during the incident. Less than 20 minutes later, deputies responded to Vista Woods Road for a successful robbery. Since June 2nd, both deputies and detectives have been working nonstop to identify the suspects involved as two more knife point robberies were committed, most recently on June 8th.

Detectives were able to identity one of the suspects as Peter Brown, 23, of Stafford. On June 9th at approximately 4:07 p.m. the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office’s SWAT Team conducted a high-risk traffic stop on Brown’s vehicle, as detectives in CID executed a search warrant on his residence. Brown was taken into custody without incident. Knives that were described in the robberies were located, as well as, numerous personal belongings of the victims.

Brown was charged with two counts of armed robbery, as well as, attempted armed robbery. He was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond. More charges may be obtained at a later date, and detectives are currently working to identify the second suspect.

Great work to all of the deputies and detectives involved in this week-long investigation. Also, thank you to every citizen in the area who provided tips and Ring footage to help locate the suspect.
