Meet a fun-loving Reston native who, when he wants to shake off the mauve dust of our beloved New Town(tm), goes to Fredericksburg to blow off some steam. Want to catch up with him? Just follow the trail of blood.
A trail of blood led police to a man suspected of trying to break into a Fredericksburg residence a short time earlier.Of course he didn't say -- what happens in Fredericksburg stays in Fredericksburg.
City police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said a resident in the 300 block of Hanover Street was awakened by the sound of breaking glass about 3 a.m. Sunday.
Officers followed a trail of blood and found the suspect at the corner of Hanover Street and Kenmore Avenue a short time later. Blood was still dripping on the sidewalk and one arm was cut badly enough to require about a dozen stitches, Bledsoe said.
[A 27-year-old Reston man] was charged with unlawful entry, destruction of property and public intoxication. The suspect told police he'd been celebrating at Spirit's downtown earlier in the evening but declined to say how both of his arms got bloodied.
