Three Alexandria men arrested after robbery and abduction in West End

Three men are being held without bond in the city jail after a robbery and abduction in the West End.

The incident occurred on February 23 at an apartment in the 51oo block of Fairbanks Avenue, which is near the intersection of Seminary Road and N. Beauregard Street. The victim went to the apartment to meet with an “associate”, who asked him for money, but the man said he didn’t have any, according to a search warrant affidavit.

The victim was then allegedly punched in the face and stomach, and told to call someone to give him money. The victim told police that he called his employer, that he was punched while he made the call and that the punch was filmed on a phone. One suspect, after he was arrested, told police that a knife was held to the victim’s neck while money was demanded.

“(The victim) was prevented from leaving the residence as he was in fear he would be further injured,” police said in the warrant. “(The victim) stated the suspects were holding him in the house by preventing free access to the door.”

The victim’s employer arrived shortly thereafter, and one of the suspects went outside to speak with him, according to the warrant. After a brief meeting, the suspects let the victim out of the apartment. Once outside, the victim was allegedly restrained by two suspects, and the victim’s employer called out for him to run to him if he was in trouble. The victim reportedly ran to his employer, and then the group dispersed and the three suspects were arrested.

Police arrested Alexandria residents Anthony Henriquez-Prudencio, 19, and Adalberto Santamaria, 19, and Manfredy Aguilar-Ruiz, 22, of Washington, D.C. The men were charged with robbery and abduction and go to court for the offenses on April 1 (Friday).
