Pedestrian struck in Sterling - 9/9/20

An Ashburn man reportedly intentionally struck a female to whom he is related in a parking lot in Sterling Sept. 4.

A man is facing charges after a reported domestic incident Sept. 4 in which he reportedly struck a pedestrian intentionally with his vehicle in Sterling, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to a parking lot in the 44600 block of Prentice Drive around 2:30 p.m. for a report that a female had been struck by a vehicle.

Authorities said the victim and several juveniles were walking to her vehicle when the suspect, who is reportedly related to the victim, pinned her between his vehicle and hers.

After bystanders stepped in, the victim reportedly fled the scene.

Shortly thereafter, deputies received a report from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police that the suspect was on the Dulles Toll Road, where he had reportedly struck multiple vehicles before coming to a stop.

The suspect — whose name authorities have yet to disclose — was transported for treatment to an area hospital, where he reportedly remains.

He faces charges of attempted malicious wounding, felony protective order violation and felony hit-and-run.

The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries and has since been released from the area hospital where she was treated.

None of the juveniles involved were seriously injured, per the LCSO.
