Police: Suspect Leads Officers on Foot Chase After Punching Man at Tysons Metro Station

A D.C. man was arrested Wednesday morning after an altercation at the Tysons Corner Metro station and a brief police chase.

Fairfax County Police say 31-year-old Jaron Ulmer was getting off a train at the station just before 7 a.m. when he turned around and accused a man of following him. Ulmer then punched the man several times, according to police.

“Ulmer ran away but was arrested after a short foot pursuit by responding police officers,” said an FCPD crime report. “Ulmer was charged with malicious wounding, public intoxication and obstruction of justice.”

A malicious wounding charge suggests the victim’s injuries were serious enough to make the crime a felony, as opposed to a less severe assault charge.
