After an eight-hour-long search last week, Vienna police tracked down and arrested a man in connection with several crimes around the Town of Vienna, including assault, fraud and burglary.
It all started shortly after midnight last Monday (June 17) when police said a 27-year-old man of no fixed residence tried to pay a cab driver, who had dropped him off in front of the Wolftrap Hotel (430 W. Maple Avenue), with multiple credit cards that were all declined.
“The man began to walk away, and when the cab driver confronted him regarding the payment, the man threatened him with a knife,” according to police. “The man then ran off behind the hotel.”
About four hours later, police said that the man was caught trying to get into a home in the 300 block of Nutley Street and ran off. The resident of the home went out to look for the man, found him and recognized him as an acquaintance, according to police.
When the resident told the man to leave the property, the man threatened the resident with a knife and then ran away, police said.
Shortly before 8:30 a.m., a different resident at a home in the 200 block of Paris Court SW spotted the man on her deck while checking her home’s security cameras.
“Officers located the man and found he was the same person involved in the incidents that had occurred earlier,” according to police.
By that point, the police had warrants charging assault with a weapon, defrauding a cab driver, burglary with a weapon and assault. Once they found the man, police determined that he was also wanted in Fairfax County on warrants charging probation violation and failure to appear in court.
After he was arrested, “the man began complaining that he did not feel well and needed medical attention,” according to police. He was taken to a nearby hospital for an evaluation and, once the hospital staff cleared him, to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
But that’s not all.
While police were searching for the man, police said they stumbled across several bags of his belongings in the backyard of a home in the 100 block of Mendon Lane SW.
“The resident advised the bags did not belong to him, and he wanted them removed,” according to police. “Officers inventoried the property and found that in addition to personal belongings, the bags contained narcotics and drug paraphernalia.”
