Fairfax Police Arrest Man Allegedly Trespassing, Assaulting Police at McDonald’s

Fairfax County police arrested a 30-year-man at a McDonald’s in Tysons for allegedly trespassing, pretending to be an employee and assaulting a police officer.

The incident occurred around 10:15 p.m. last Friday (July 5) at 8111 Leesburg Pike.

Police said an employee reported that a man was trespassing, and police discovered that he falsely claimed to be an employee.

“The man refused to leave, resisted arrest and assaulted an officer,” according to the police report.

Police arrested and charged Hakeem Linkins of no fixed address with resisting arrest, trespassing and assault on a law enforcement officer. He was held without bond.

In a separate incident, police are investigating grand larceny at the Safeway (1688 Anderson Road) in McLean near Tysons on Saturday (July 6).

Around 2 a.m., three men entered the store, walked around for a few minutes and then one of the men made a small purchase that distracted the clerk, while the two other men removed cash register drawers, police said.

“All three men, described as black and in their 20s, ran out of the store, entered cars and drove away,” according to the police report.
