N. Johnson/E. Beech, Sterling - stabbing

A non-fatal stabbing reportedly occurred July 29 near the intersection of N. Johnson Road and E. Beech Road in Sterling.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is investigating a stabbing that reportedly occurred in a Sterling residential area Wednesday night.

Deputies responded to the intersection of North Johnson Road and East Beech Road around 11:39 p.m. to find a victim suffering from multiple stab wounds.

While driving in the area, the victim and witnesses noticed a bicycle-riding man with whom they had interacted earlier, according to the LCSO.

The suspect reportedly stabbed and assaulted a man after he and the witnesses exited the vehicle to confront the suspect.

Authorities say the victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries, which were treated at a local hospital.

The suspect is described as an approximately 20-year-old Hispanic male riding a BMX-style bike, wearing a black T-shirt, black shorts/pants, a black bucket-style hat and no facial hair.

The case remains under investigation by the LCSO.

The unfortunate event in Sterling could have occurred anywhere in Loudoun county, just as easily in the potomac falls area which is a part of Sterling, Va, it being the northernmost portion.
