Child neglect suspect arrested after evading Alexandria police for six months

A 27-year-old Woodbridge man has been arrested by Alexandria Police after allegedly evading his court date for child neglect and ducking law enforcement for nearly six months.

The man, who was arrested on August 3, failed to show up for his Feb. 11 court sentencing at the Alexandria Courthouse.

In the first week in May, police reached out to the suspect via phone, and he allegedly told police that he needed a few weeks to get his affairs in order and would turn himself in, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Police called the suspect back two weeks later, but the call didn’t go through. The suspect, who is also wanted for failing to appear in court for assault and battery against a police officer in Prince William County, blocked the number.

The suspect was held without bond, and transferred to Prince William County.
