Thomas King mugshot

Thomas V. King

A man was arrested in Ashburn Wednesday night after reportedly being involved in a domestic-related assault, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded around 9:51 p.m. to the 42000 block of Prescott Green Square, where the victim said a man had chased her with a knife.

After the suspect went inside his residence and started screaming at the deputies, they reportedly de-escalated the situation and took the suspect into custody without incident.

Thomas V. King, 53, of Ashburn, was charged with assault and battery and public intoxication.

As of Thursday morning, King was being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center, according to authorities.

LoudounsFinest--wow, so since YOU have found the suspect innocent, I guess we can just skip the trial and release him. Thanks for saving Loudoun County money and time on a useless court proceedings. Good grief.

The community doesn't need them to respond to dangerous domestic violence calls. We can use those funds to rename high school mascots and remove memorials.

I can't believe that people like you exist. Just wait until you need the police! Cases like this should be apprehend first and ask questions later. I am sure his wife is not innocent either. Hopefully both are locked up.

I think you missed the sarcasm.

I don't joke and I don't kid. Just like President Trump I am all business. Only clowns make jokes.

Than that is a sad way to go through life. If you cant laugh you might as well cry.

You're sure his wife is not innocent either & you hope they both are locked up??? Do you always think victims are responsible for someone else's criminal behavior or are you just a misogynist?
