Update: A teenager has been charged in connection with the April 12 stabbing that occurred outside of a fast-food restaurant in the South Riding area.
The 17-year-old from Fairfax County was charged Thursday with Aggravated Malicious Wounding. The arrest comes after an investigation conducted by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. During the investigation, it was learned the stabbing was not a random attack.
The 17-year-old is currently being held at the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center. The name of the juvenile cannot be released due to the fact he is a minor.
Loudoun Sheriff’s Deputies were initially called to the McDonalds in the 43200 block of Defender Drive around 1:35 a.m. on April 12 after the victim reported to a family member that he had been stabbed. The adult male victim reported that he was leaving the McDonalds when the suspect emerged from the bushes and stabbed him. The victim was taken to a local hospital for serious injuries and later released.
