Multiple violent charges against a 25-year-old Fairfax County man have been dismissed in court, although the man remains in the Alexandria jail without bond after allegedly assaulting police during his arrest.
The suspect was arrested on July 27 for carjacking, assault and battery, brandishing a firearm and and assaulting police.
The victim reported to police that the suspect pointed a gun at her head, pistol-whipped her with a handgun and forced his way into her car at Armistead L. Boothe Park in the Cameron Station neighborhood, according to a search warrant. There was also a male passenger in the car with the victim, and both of them told police that they bailed out of the car a short time later.
The female victim also told police that the suspect also stole $400 in cash. The handgun allegedly used in the incident was discarded in a back yard in the 200 block of Medlock Lane, and it was later found by a resident and turned in to police, according to the affidavit.
The suspect was arrested less than a mile away outside the 7-Eleven at 30 S. Reynolds Street. He was later positively identified by the female victim.
