Man arrested after allegedly pushing girlfriend in Alexandria apartment

A 43-year Loudoun County man was arrested last month for allegedly pushing his girlfriend and causing her fracture her elbow.

After being wanted for outstanding warrants for more than a month, Thomas Abernathy was arrested on Jan. 20 and charged with malicious wounding and domestic assault and battery. He was released that same day on $1,500 and $500 bonds.

The victim called police on Dec. 10, and accused Abernathy, her live-in boyfriend, of pushing her and causing her to fall and suffer a hairline fracture to her elbow. The incident occurred in her apartment in the 4300 block of King Street.

Abernathy allegedly declined to meet with police in person, and told them over the phone that he pushed her after she punched him twice, and that she did not fall, according to a search warrant.

The suspect then told police that he would turn himself in after getting a lawyer, but did not do so
