Woman leads police on dramatic chase in Fairfax County

ABC 7 WJLA News - Jennifer Donelan, ABC 7 News, NewsChannel 8 - Tue, 31 Mar 2015 14:14:59 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) -- A woman who had outstanding arrest warrants led Fairfax County police on a high-speed chase Tuesday morning at the same time a search was underway for an unrelated escape of an armed prisoner, authorities said.

It started about 7:40 a.m., an officer attempted a traffic stop of a pickup truck near Route 50 and Fairview Park, police said. The vehicle fled and Fairfax County officers along with Virginia State Police.

Police said they managed to finally stop the fleeing vehicle on the Fairfax County Parkway over interstate 95: the driver was taken into custody and taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Police identified her as 36-year-old Lakisha Tracy and said she had outstanding warrants from Arlington County.

Two Fairfax County officers and one Virginia State trooper also suffered minor injuries in the pursuit, authorities said.

While initial reports suggested the chase may have been tied to an armed prisoner escape from a Fairfax hospital earlier Tuesday, police later emphasized that the two events were completely unrelated.

Armed prisoner captured in D.C. after Fairfax hospital escape

ABC 7 WJLA News - ABC 7 News, Jeff Goldberg, Mike Conneen, John Gonzalez, Suzanne Kennedy, Stephen Tschida, The Associated Press - Tue, 31 Mar 2015 04:33:01 EST

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP/WJLA) - An inmate in a Fairfax hospital for treatment after a suicide attempt overpowered a guard, took her gun, escaped and carjacked two vehicles Tuesday morning, setting off a frenzied search that ended nine hours later with his capture as he got off a Metro bus in D.C.

Wossen Assaye, 42, was charged earlier this month as the "Bicycle Bandit" - accused of robbing a dozen banks in northern Virginia and sometimes fleeing on two wheels.

Assaye had tried to kill himself in jail last Friday and was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital, authorities said. He had been under the supervision of two contract guards.

Fairfax County Police said that about 3 a.m. Tuesday, Assaye overpowered a female guard when the other guard left to use the restroom. He took her gun and used her as a shield. He then fled down a stairwell, wearing only his hospital gown.

The other guard fired one shot in the encounter. No one was hit, and nobody at the hospital was injured.

Outside the hospital, Assaye fled on foot and hid in the trunk of a car. Police were unsure whether Assaye had left the hospital complex. They locked the hospital down and conducted a room-by-room search.

While Assaye hid in the trunk, the woman who owned the car entered it and began driving. Assaye kicked out the trunk and carjacked the startled woman, who suffered slight injuries, said Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler.

Assaye later abandoned that car and left the guard's weapon there, police said.

Witnesses reported seeing Assaye on foot in an Annandale neighborhood a few miles from the hospital - not far from the site of the carjacking. Assaye then carjacked a second vehicle, police said.

By 10 a.m., officers were searching Annandale neighborhoods with a helicopter overhead and heavily armed officers on the ground. In one neighborhood, Spence Limbocker said he heard the copter, went outside and saw a massive police presence, including officers armed with assault rifles searching homes and nearby woods.

"They told me to get back in the house and lock all my doors. ... It was a little scary," Limbocker said.

Police sent numerous updates and lookout advisories on social media for Assaye and the carjacked vehicles. Roessler said the arrest occurred at Minnesota Avenue and 25th Street in southeast Washington without incident after a citizen saw Assaye and alerted authorities.

At a press conference around noon Tuesday after Assaye was back in custody, U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Virginia Bobby Mathieson said he plans a review of the policies and procedures in place for guarding inmates at the hospital.

Still, he said, "two people should be able to guard a prisoner securely."

He said that to his knowledge, Assaye was shackled at the time of the escape, as policies require. But Mathieson had no explanation for how Assaye would have overpowered a guard while shackled or how he may have shed his handcuffs.

The guards were with Allied Protection Services, a private firm.

Assaye was arrested March 20 and charged with a robbery at Apple Federal Credit Union in Alexandria. But the FBI believes Assaye, of Arlington, is responsible for a string of 12 bank robberies in northern Virginia over the last year and a half that netted him about $32,000.

Brooke Rupert, a public defender who was representing Assaye in the robbery case, declined to comment Tuesday.

Assaye had been booked into the Alexandria jail, which typically holds federal inmates charged in northern Virginia, on the federal charges March 21, Alexandria Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Amy Bertsch said. On Friday, he attempted suicide and was taken to the hospital just outside the Capital Beltway in Fairfax County for treatment, she said. Alexandria deputy sheriffs turned Assaye over to security officers contracted by the U.S. Marshals after the first 24 hours, she said.

It was not clear why Assaye had to remain in the hospital for four days. Mathieson said his only lasting injury after the suicide attempt was a broken nose.

An initial appearance on the escape charges took place Tuesday afternoon at the federal courthouse in Alexandria.

Assaye was charged with escaping from the custody of the U.S. Attorney General: he waived his detention hearing and had his next court appearance set for Friday.

Which Northern Va. transportation projects will be funded?

ABC 7 WJLA News - Jay Korff - Thu, 26 Mar 2015 01:01:09 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) – Ask anyone who lives or works in Northern Virginia and they’ll tell you traffic congestion is easily one of their biggest concerns, as it has a direct impact on their quality of life.

On Wednesday, the public battle began on what future transportation projects will and won’t get funded in the region.

“We believe in unlocking Northern Virginia’s transportation crisis and it is, in fact, a crisis,” said Joe Vidulich with the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce.

The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) held a packed public hearing in Fairfax on which projects will receive funding in fiscal years 2015 and 2016 from a pot of approximately $350 million.

Many who spoke said that that money should go primarily to congestion-reducing, road-widening projects that are also cost effective.

“If you take the transportation network in Northern Virginia and by one measure go slower than the posted speed limit, add up all that time for all the people on one weekday, it’s about 900,000 hours of wasted time,” said Del. Jim LeMunyon (R).

The authority presented a list of a couple dozen recommended transportation projects at the meeting (click here for map). Among the recommendations: widening a section of Route 1 in Prince William County and making roadway improvements to Route 50 in Fairfax.

But some proposed road improvement projects, suggested by various jurisdictions, didn’t make the cut, including widening a section of Rolling Road in Springfield. Del. David Albo (R) argued the criteria for selecting projects isn’t consistent.

“Your rating—12.5, 13 projects that you’ve selected have ratings less than 12.5, so that’s one of the reasons why I’m confused about why it was not included,” he said.

The public has another couple weeks to give their input to the NVTA. Authority members can change their minds. So, a project that didn’t make the cut on the present list of recommended projects can still make the cut when final decisions are made in late April.

Arlington County named Virginia's healthiest locality

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press - Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:57:03 EST

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Arlington County is the healthiest county in Virginia while Tazewell County is at the bottom of the list, according to an annual report on the health of the nation's counties and municipalities.

The sixth annual County Health Rankings released Wednesday ranks Albemarle County as the second healthiest county, followed by Fairfax, Loudoun, and York counties. Henry, Buchanan, Dickenson and Wise are among the least healthy counties.

Arlington, Loudoun and Fairfax counties have been among the healthiest counties in each of the survey's six years.

Among municipalities, Alexandria is ranked first, followed by Manassas, Falls Church and Poquoson. At the bottom is Petersburg, followed by Martinsville, Hopewell and Danville.

Eight percent of adults in Arlington County and 10 percent in Alexandria reported poor or fair health, compared to 31 percent in Dickenson County, 29 percent in Tazewell and Buchanan counties and 19 percent in Petersburg. Statewide, 14 percent of residents reported poor or fair health.

Researchers at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin measured localities on 30 factors, including education, obesity, diet, exercise, teen births, smoking and alcohol-related traffic deaths.

Counties and municipalities ranked low have more teen births, more smokers and more alcohol-related traffic deaths. The healthiest counties have better access to recreational opportunities, higher college attendance and fewer preventable hospital stays, the report said.

Petersburg's adult obesity rate, 36 percent, was twice as high as Arlington County's rate. The statewide rate was 25 percent.

Nationwide, the annual rankings have served as a rallying point for change, Bridget Catlin, co-director of the survey, said in a news release.

Preventing ovarian cancer, one surgery at a time

ABC 7 WJLA Health - Caroline Tucker - Wed, 25 Mar 2015 00:12:52 EST

WASHINGTON (NewsChannel 8) &ndash: Angelina Jolie announced in a New York Times op-ed piece that she had preventative surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.

It's the same surgery that was recommended to Alyssa McCrea after she tested positive for a mutated BRCA gene.

":I wish that I hadn't had all of the things that had delayed me in getting my ovaries out. If I could do it over again, I would have had them out sooner,": said McCrea. ":There are thousands and thousands of women dealing with this every single day, quietly.&rdquo:

McCrea, a legal secretary, had a father who was sick, she was newly engaged, and the mother of two thought about having more children. She underwent a preventive double mastectomy, because her mother had been diagnosed twice with breast cancer and also tested positive for the mutated BRCA gene. Then she got remarried.

":I got married on Sept. 29, 2013 and my husband and I came back from our honeymoon and I started having symptoms, bloating and distended stomach, and nausea,": said McCrea.

An ultrasound showed tumors on both ovaries and she went through with the surgery. McCrea said the surgery revealed Stage IIIA ovarian cancer.

Beth Peshkin is a senior genetic counselor at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

":I think we can't underestimate the psychological impact, even if the news isn't what they had hoped,": said Peshkin.

Peshkin says the recommendation is for women aged 35 to 40, who test positive for a mutated gene, to have surgery.

":Ovarian screenings don't pick up cancer at an early stage, so having the ovaries removed saves lives,": said Peshkin.

Of course, it is always a decision that patients should discuss with their doctor. McCrea finished her chemotherapy treatments this past summer and is looking toward the future. She hopes her story will help others.

":I know it is cliche, but knowledge is power,": she said.

There are some signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, but it is difficult to detect during the early stages. Some of those symptoms include: bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, trouble eating or feeling full quickly, and feeling the need to urinate often.

There is an upcoming 5K run/walk happening in Fairfax, Va. on May 17. The Northern Virginia Chapter of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is hosting the 13th annual event, called ":Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer.":

2 international students sexually assaulted in Burke while job hunting

BURKE, Va. (AP) - Fairfax County Police are investigating a report that two international students from Mongolia were sexually assaulted earlier this month.

Police said Monday that the two women, ages 20 and 31, were looking for jobs at Ballston Commons Mall in Arlington on March 8 when they received a lead about a housekeeping job in Burke.

The women reported to police that they were given alcohol and sexually assaulted after going to the home.

No charges have been filed yet. But police say there may have been other victims and are asking the public to contact them with any relevant information.

Spotsylvania Girl Scout leader accused of sending porn to teen in his troop

ABC 7 WJLA News - Stephen Tschida - Tue, 24 Mar 2015 00:41:36 EST

SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. (WJLA) – A Spotsylvania Girl Scout leader accused of sending porn over the internet to and having inappropriate contact with a teen in his troop has been arrested for numerous felony counts of child pornography.

Investigators say Chad Miller had been active in Girl Scouts for several years.

A sweep of his home allegedly uncovered hundreds of pornographic images involving children on computers and cell phones. The investigation was sparked by a 14-year-old girl telling her parents that Miller, 47, had emailed her a link to a porn site.

“There was sexual contact and inappropriate contact with the child, both through electronic means and in person,” said Captain Jeff Pearce of the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office.

Miller’s neighbors are stunned and troubled by the arrest. Jennifer Gados is friends with Millers’ daughters.

“She saw the police and they wouldn’t let her go into the house,” Jennifer said. “He said that her dad was staying in a hotel and she, like, felt sad and all that for her dad.”

Miller led the Girl Scout troop with his wife. On Monday night, their young daughters were in foster care while neighbors say Miller and his wife left this weekend after he bonded out of jail.

“That’s shocking. I’m surprised,” said neighbor Ben Kisila.

Investigators believe there’s a possibility there could be more victims in Spotsylvania County. They also say it’s possible Miller could be linked to a prior case in Fairfax County.
