Fairfax County police arrested a Falls Church man after he allegedly wounded a man during a fight in a residential area by Haycock Elementary School.

The incident happened around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10, in the 2200 block of Orchid Drive.

“Officers responded to the area for two men fighting,” according to the police report. “Officers found and arrested the suspect nearby.”

The victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Police charged 50-year-old Spyros Pagonis with unlawful wounding.

In a separate incident, police arrested a Maryland man for grand larceny at a Home Depot (2815 Merrilee Drive) in Merrifield around 3:45 p.m. on Sunday (Aug. 11).

“Officers responded for a larceny at the Home Depot and found store security fighting with the suspect when they arrived,” police said.

Police said that the suspect “pulled away and ran from officers” while being arrested, but was caught after a short foot pursuit.

“It was learned that the suspect had committed grand larceny at another Home Depot just before coming to this location and had over $3,000 worth of stolen items with him,” police said.

Police charged 36-year-old Derik Henderson with grand larceny, assault and resisting arrest.
