Fairfax County police have arrested a 21-year-old Centreville man in connection with an assault last week on a woman jogging in Franconia. He is Vincent Wesley, and police charged him with malicious wounding and strangulation.
Officers responded, last Wednesday, May 13, to the 6600 block of Audrey Kay Court, around 10:30 a.m., after a report of a woman being assaulted. She told police she was jogging on a trail near the end of Thomas Grant Drive when an unknown man began attacking her. A witness came to her aid and the man ran away. The woman was taken to the hospital and treated for serious injuries that were not life-threatening.
After searching the area, officers identified and arrested Wesley nearby. He was then taken to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and held without bond. Meanwhile, police continue to seek information about this incident. Anyone with information about it – or having home-surveillance video of Wesley in the area – is asked to call Det. P. Edwards of the Franconia District Station, Criminal Investigations Section, at 703-277-2466.
