Two men were arrested in Ashburn on July 4 after both allegedly assaulted a male victim and one attempted to rob him, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to the 43000 block of Van Metre Drive around 10:20 p.m. Saturday after the victim reported the incident, which reportedly occurred in the parking lot of a Royal Farms gas station.

Authorities say the victim sustained minor injuries and knew his alleged assailants.

Mubdi Chowdhury, 20, and Francisco Elias Castanaza, 18, both of Ashburn, were charged with assault. Elias Castanaza was also charged with attempted robbery.

Per the LCSO, both suspects were being held Monday at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond, and the case remains under investigation.

Dumb kids. They would have made more money applying for a job at Royal Farms. Hope they receive a good lesson busting big rocks into small rocks in prison.
