200 block Mayfield Ave, 6/25 8:45 p.m. Police responded to reports of a man who was bleeding severely and found a 38-year-old resident of the home who had been stabbed multiple times in the abdomen. The investigation revealed that the offender was the victim’s step-father, who also lived in the residence and was still on the scene when police arrived. The two men had reportedly gotten into an argument inside the house just prior to the assault. Michael Conway, 56, of Fredericksburg was arrested for malicious wounding and domestic assault and battery, as well as on two outstanding warrants charging him with probation violation. Conway was incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond.
Regal Cinemas, 3301 Plank Rd, 6/25 12:30 a.m. A resident of Mineral reported that he was getting into his Mercedes in the parking lot of the theater with a female friend when they were approached by four males, one of whom had his face covered. The man wearing the mask pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the victims. When the owner of the Mercedes put the car in gear to pull off, the suspect attempted to grab the keys out of the ignition. The suspect then fired several shots at the vehicle as the victim drove away, and at least two of the rounds entered the car through the rear panels. Neither the driver nor his passenger was injured. The victims described the suspects as two black males and two males of unknown race. The investigation is ongoing.
UPDATE TO VEHICLE LARCENY:
The investigation of a larceny of a red Isuzu Trooper that was reported on June 24 was closed with the recovery of the vehicle on June 25 and the arrest of the offender. Officer Chris Perdue was patrolling in the 1800 block of Carl D Silver Parkway around 2 a.m. when he stopped to check an Isuzu that was parked at the Capital One ATM. There were two male occupants with the vehicle, who were both detained for questioning. When another officer started to put the Isuzu’s driver in handcuffs, the suspect took off running across Carl D Silver Parkway with Officer Perdue in pursuit on foot. Perdue caught up to the suspect behind the Krispy Kreme building and took him into custody without further incident. Evidence found inside the vehicle also linked the suspect to vehicle break-ins at Mary Washington Hospital that had occurred earlier in the evening. Jesse Shepherd, 26, of Ruther Glen was arrested for two counts of grand larceny, four counts of possession of stolen credit cards, one count of attempted credit card fraud, one count of destruction of property, and resisting arrest.
