With schools out for winter break, the Vienna Police Department has encountered some rowdy behavior from youngsters over the past few weeks.

According to the department’s crime report for Dec. 22 to Jan. 6, two juveniles are facing potential felony charges for property destruction and trespassing after they allegedly drove over and damaged Waters Field (130 Cherry Street SE) by the Vienna Community Center.

The incident occurred at 11:16 p.m. on Dec. 19:

A resident reported a vehicle driving recklessly on Waters Field, causing damage. An officer located the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle was occupied by two juveniles who were both taken into custody and transported to the Vienna Police Station. One juvenile was released to the custody of his step-father, the other was released to his adult sister. Petitions are pending.

In an unrelated event from around 7:57 p.m. that same evening, a woman reported to police that she was bedeviled by youths throwing Tide detergent pods at her vehicle while waiting at the Maple Avenue and Beulah Road stoplight:

A woman reported that she noticed a vehicle occupied by juveniles follow her as she left the 7-11 parking lot. While she was on Maple Avenue at the traffic light for Beulah Road, the juveniles threw Tide pods at her vehicle. Officers responded to the vehicle owner’s residence and found it was the owner’s sons and one of their friends who were in the vehicle throwing the pods. The woman did not wish to pursue charges.

Vienna police have also recently responded to some incidents involving adult residents, including a report of “an unknown situation between four men” in the Vienna Park apartments area on Cedar Lane.

The report that officers received at 6:35 p.m. on Dec. 26 indicated that three of the men appeared to be assaulting the fourth man, who was on the ground.

“All of the men entered an apartment before officers arrived,” the VPD said in its weekly crime report. “Officers spoke to the residents. The man who had been on the ground advised the officers that the other men were just helping him up and into the apartment and that no crime had occurred.”
