An Ashburn man and woman were arrested Wednesday after allegedly participating in the group assault of a man at Ashburn Village Shopping Center, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies received reports from a victim around 9:27 p.m. claiming he was approached in a parking lot near the 44100 block of Ashburn Shopping Plaza by a female, whom he knew, and five males, some of whom he knew.

The woman and three of the men reportedly surrounded the victim and threatened him before assaulting him, but the victim was able to free himself and flee on foot. Authorities say he did not sustain any injuries.

The four suspects were identified and two were located.

Christian T. Knock, 20, and Summer Mirzian, 19, were charged with assault by mob.

Both suspects were later released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center -- Knock on a $1,500 bond and Mirzian on a personal recognizance bond.

Charges against the two other suspects were still outstanding as of Thursday morning.

How does one threaten some one, then assault them. The act of threatening is assault. They were probably selling those new 1200 round magazines. For most of you, who don't know the definition assault rifle; Google- assault rifle first page up has excellent definition, read it and learn. Semi-automaltic rifles are not assault weapons, AR-15's are not assault weapons. If you want to limit something, try limiting the size of the magazine. You go over 20 rds you can run into jamming problems.

I haven’t read anything about firearms within this particular article. That said, “amerigirl”, you articulate well...but are throwing such things into this article that has nothing to do with it. This is not your best platform to vent...and I feel bad for you that you feel the need to “escalate “ an assault by people, that knew them, to soap box yourself. You’ve never once within your rant, said that you know any of the kids involved. But apparently the actual parties involved, have had prior experience with each other. That said, what ALL of you failed to realize, is that these are our youth, and future..albeit a bad example of how to treat each other. People need....and really need to get off the soapbox and start parenting again. Or better yet, spend more time helping the community, than “blowharding” about it. By the way, there were NO INJURIES incurred with this. Teenagers aren’t the most experienced people on earth. Y’all need another hobby.

Well said


amerigirl

Gravy, see how your name is at the beginning of my statement, the statement you are referring to has Ace written there? I was responding to a statement written by Ace10 even though I had posted before that his comments were off topic. I was not venting but replying. Do you understand the difference?


More Cowbell

It's in her DNA...


amerigirl

Ace, are you afraid you would be flagged by a red flag law? Do you understand that it is gun control law that permits police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves. Why are you against that? It would have to be proven to a judge that the person is a danger and would stop many suicides. What is the point of high capacity magazines? There is only 1 I can think of, to take out as many people as possible. You have objections to all these things but you won’t say why. Please enlighten me. NOBODY wants to confiscate all your guns. That is just a conspiracy made up by the NRA to make you buy more guns and ammo. It has proven to work for them and they continue to use it. They said it after every mass shooting & after democratic presidents are elected. It was Obama who said “I don’t want your guns, what am I going to do with them?” It was trump who said “I like taking guns away early. Take the guns first, go through due process second.” It was Trump, not Obama, who said he’d be a gun grabber. It was Trump, not Obama, who took away bump stocks. Can you imagine the outrage from Second Amendment supporters if Obama had said or done these things? Obama spoke time and again of his support of the Second Amendment. The gun industry needed an enemy and it got one. Its eight-year scare campaign paid off in the form of record gun sales, record industry profits and soaring stock prices for gun manufacturers.















Reasonably you should know that democrats think you have a right to own regular guns, maybe not assault rifles. But again, nobody is trying to take all your guns.

Let us not forget that LCPS is considered a very racist school district and county. Amergirl says it’s not about race, everything nowadays is about race. This is some white persons fault or a white teacher or some other form of a white scapegoat.


amerigirl

Maybe in your world.


Concern mom

Agree


btm11

Obviously this wasn't a random crime because the victim was sought out and they knew each other. What's missing from the story is what reason was suspected for the assault. Was the assailed party guilty of some insult that in the culture of black youth demanded violent retaliation? What is the community doing to educate the black youth culture about alternatives to violence when disrespected by an individual or group?


amerigirl

Why would you jump to it being a race thing, Summer Mirzian is white. It looks like a personal conflict. People are individuals and do things on their own, not every black kid has an undesirable culture, not every Latino is in a gang. and not everyone that shaves their head is a white nationalist.


Chris McHale

Never mind, I just saw it.


Chris McHale

Why does he get bond and she gets R&R? Also where's her photo?


btm11

Probably because black male criminals are treated more harshly than females.


RoundHillGuy

Looks like Ashburn is slowly turning into Sterling.








amerigirl

There isn't near as much crime in sterling as ashburn.


CindyLou

Not really, the difference is, criminals with money are far worse. They seem to have this "privileged" thing going on. Ashburn and One Loudoun, are just as bad as Sterling.


More Cowbell

More like Loudoun turning into Fairfax crime.


ace10

Gun-grabbing liberals don't want you to be able to defend yourself against multiple attackers... today, they say that "high capacity" are evil.... nobody could ever need to use more than X rounds. Tomorrow, they will want to take away your Constitutionally-guaranteed right to protect yourself with a firearm.




Dawnseven

Where is there a mention of guns in this article?


ace10

There isn't. Not everyone has the ability to outrun a group of people who are intent on doing harm. Gun grabbers want to ensure that law-abiding citizens don't have the ability to defend themselves in these circumstances.


amerigirl

Wouldn't it be easier to have comprehensive back ground checks and red flag laws so those idiots shooting crowds wouldn't have the guns to begin with? Stop the shooters, stop the problem. You "law-abiding citizens" should care that they are giving all gun owners a bad name.


ace10

Last month it was suppressors. Then it was high capacity magazines. Now it's Red Flag laws. Why won't the gun grabbers just come out and admit that that they want to confiscate all lawfully-owned firearms?


CindyLou

Really? Gun-grabbing liberals? why do you right wing bullies have to carry on like that??? I am a liberal and I believe everyone should have the right to carry a gun and if I had one and this happened to me.....I would have shot them. That's like me saying all "Republicans" racist. There are stupid people and bad people, doesn't matter if they are Gun-grabbing liberals or racist republicans.


amerigirl

[offtopic] Like the guarantee to life (like being in your yard without being shot), liberty Free to own and live in a home without it being shot) and the pursuit of happiness (Be able to go to a movie, shopping, concert or school without far of being shot) ? Your rights are no more important than anyone else's rights.


ace10

Good grief. Lawbreakers don't follow laws. Surely you can understand that. I am not a lawbreaker. YOU WILL NOT infringe on my Constitutionally-guaranteed rights.


amerigirl

Glad you aren't a lawbreaker. Remember that citizens are guarantee their right under the Constitution also. You should NOT infringe on their Constitutionally guaranteed right either. Theirs are just as important and protected.


ace10

Will "Ashburn man" eventually overtake "Florida man" as the internet's favorite meme for stupid criminals?
