    Two arrested following hit-and-run in Sterling

    Two men were arrested Friday following an altercation with a North Carolina man in the parking lot of the Cascades Marketplace shopping center.

    The 1:57 a.m. incident began in the 46300 block of McClellan Way and ended with the 41-year-old North Carolina man in Inova Fairfax Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

    According a Loudoun Sheriff's Office report, the man was attempting to separate two people who were fighting in the shopping center's parking lot.

    During the incident, the victim lost his shoes and other clothing as he was assaulted. When he went to retrieve the items, a vehicle circled the parking lot and, according to witnesses, intentionally hit the victim before leaving the scene.

    The vehicle was later found and the driver and a passenger were taken into custody.

    After further investigation the driver, Freddy L. Prem, 24, of Sterling, was charged with malicious wounding, felony hit and run and drunk in public. The passenger, Javier Benitez, 22, of Leesburg, was charged with malicious wounding and failure to render aid.

    Benitez was subsequently charged with DUI that was not related to the initial incident.

    Both men are being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.

    The victim has since been released from the hospital.
