Man arrested for allegedly threatening to kill West End woman over lost money and jewelry

A 33-year-old Alexandria man was briefly arrested last month after allegedly threatening that he would shoot and kill a woman unless she returned cash and jewelry to his mother.

The incident occurred on April 28 (Thursday), at around 8:45 p.m. in the 200 block of S. Reynolds Street in the Landmark area. The victim answered a knock at her apartment door and spoke briefly with the suspect, who allegedly told her that he had a gun and would kill her if she did not return his mother’s money and jewelry, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Ten days earlier, on April 18 (Monday), the victim was questioned by police for using at least 16 checks and allegedly stealing jewelry. The victim told police that she used the checks mistakenly because she is illiterate, but denied stealing any jewelry, according to a search warrant affidavit.

The suspect was arrested for threatening to extort money on May 9 and released on the same day on $1,200 unsecured bond. He goes to court for the offense on June 3.
