Reston's traditional New Year's Eve festivities, which culminated in a mob attack and stabbing, have finally yielded a second arrest. So after wondering why 10 or 15 people might be hanging around in a parking lot in the middle of the night for nearly two months, we've finally figured out it was gang related. Turns out gang members are only human -- they want to ring in the New Year, too!
Police investigation revealed that the driver, rear passenger, and a female passenger had driven to Scotch Bonnet Court after attending a party in Loudoun County.To be fair, watching Ryan Seacrest and Dick Clark always puts us into a rage, too. But we'll try stick to noisemakers and bad champagne.
Investigation revealed that the residence of the party was the home of a gang member of the Ghost Town Crips," according to court documents.
The boyfriend -- a juvenile -- and a group of 10 to 15 men surrounded the victims' vehicle, according to Fairfax Police Department press releases. "I'm going to teach this man a lesson," the juvenile said, according to search warrants.
The juvenile assaulted the driver with his fists, according to search warrants filed in Fairfax County Circuit Court. A second individual assaulted the rear passenger, when the rear passenger attempted to help the driver. The second individual produced a large buck knife and stabbed the rear passenger several times in his back. As the victim driver drove away, both suspects fell out of the car and onto the ground, according to search warrants.
"A large amount of blood was found inside the victim's vehicle," according to search warrants.
