Arlington man allegedly abducts and robs disabled ex-girlfriend in West End apartment

A 29-year-old Arlington man faces a jury trial next month for allegedly robbing and assaulting his disabled ex-girlfriend in her West End apartment.

The suspect has been held without bond in the Alexandria jail since his arrest on February 8.

On February 1, a week before his arrest, the suspect allegedly forced his way into the woman’s apartment and removed her from her wheelchair, according to a search warrant affidavit. The incident occurred in an apartment in the Assembly Alexandria apartment complex in the 200 block of Century Place — the same apartment complex where two men were recently shot to death.

“(The suspect) forced his way into (the victim’s) apartment and then physically removed her from her wheelchair before continuing further inside the apartment,” police reported in a search warrant affidavit.

The suspect allegedly took:

  • The victim’s phone
  • A laptop
  • Credit cards
  • Cash
  • An iPad

The suspect then allegedly withdrew $405.20 from an ATM with the victim’s debit card.

On February 8, Alexandria Police found out that the suspect was riding a DASH bus on a West End route — not far from where the incident occurred. Police stopped the bus at Landmark Mall, and arrested him.

The suspect goes to a jury trial on August 30 (Monday) and faces charges including abduction, statutory burglary, grand larceny and assault and battery.

The Alexandria Sexual Assault Center and Domestic Violence Program is available 24/7 to listen and help at 703-746-4911.

“If you are a neighbor and know that an abusive incident is occurring, call the police immediately,” the city said. “Calling the police is simply the most effective way to protect the victim and children from immediate harm.”
