Marshals review procedures after inmate escaped Fairfax hospital, broke into home

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press, ABC 7 News - Wed, 01 Apr 2015 15:26:14 EST

ANNANDALE, Va. (AP/WJLA) - Federal marshals were reviewing their security procedures Wednesday after an inmate receiving treatment at a northern Virginia hospital overpowered a private guard, took her gun and set off a frenzied nine-hour manhunt.

The escape by Wossen Assaye, 42, of Arlington, from Inova Fairfax Hospital prompted questions as to why two guards assigned to him were insufficient to prevent his escape, U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Virginia Bobby Mathieson said.

"Two people should be able to guard a prisoner securely," Mathieson said at a news conference Tuesday after Assaye was apprehended.

Assaye was charged earlier this month as the "Bicycle Bandit" - accused of robbing a dozen banks in northern Virginia and sometimes fleeing on two wheels. He attempted suicide while in jail awaiting trial and had been at Inova Fairfax Hospital since last Friday, authorities said.

For the first 24 hours, he was guarded by sheriff's deputies from Alexandria, where he had been jailed. After that, the Marshals Service contracts called for two private guards from Allied Protection Services, a Los Angeles-based company, to guard him.

Mathieson said the investigation was ongoing and he was unable to explain exactly how Assaye was able to overpower the guards. He said that to his knowledge, Assaye was shackled and handcuffed 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 incident began about 3 a.m. Tuesday, when one of the two guards left for a bathroom break, leaving a female guard alone with Assaye. Mathieson said Assaye then overpowered the female guard, 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.

A frenzied manhunt ensued, with the hospital placed on lockdown and police searching every room of the massive facility, the largest hospital in northern Virginia.

In reality, though, authorities say Assaye had fled the hospital on foot and hid in the trunk of a car.

When 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, Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler said.

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

He then hijacked a second car in an Annandale neighborhood a few miles from the hospital.

One homeowner said that Assaye drove one of those two cars into the garage of her Annandale home, then broke in.

Lorraine Giovinazzo said Assaye apparently entered the almost-empty house by jimmying the handles on a set of glass doors. She said she was grateful that she had just moved because her mother would have been home by herself at the time.

Giovinazzo said he left behind the hospital gown and took some old clothes.

Police searched several residential neighborhoods with tactical officers armed with assault rifles, startling residents. In one neighborhood, Spence Limbocker said he heard the helicopter, went outside and saw a massive police presence, including officers 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 in southeast Washington without incident after a citizen saw Assaye and alerted authorities.

A man who returned a call to the number listed as company headquarters for Allied Protection Services referred all questions to the Marshals Service.

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

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.

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.

Assaye made an initial appearance Tuesday afternoon in federal court in Alexandria on the escape charge, dressed in a white vinyl jumpsuit, shackled at the wrists and ankles and guarded by four marshals.

His head slumped through the brief hearing, Assaye answered meekly when asked if he understood the charge and his rights.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Friday afternoon. His public defender waived his right to a detention hearing.

Va. schools get 4-year waiver extension on No Child Left Behind standards

ABC 7 WJLA Education - The Associated Press - Wed, 01 Apr 2015 13:50:16 EST

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia will continue to get relief from federal education requirements and No Child Left Behind-era sanctions.

The Virginia Department of Education says federal officials have approved the state's request for a four-year extension of its Elementary and Secondary Education Act flexibility waiver originally approved in 2012.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Steven Staples extension allows Virginia schools to plan through the 2018-2019 school year with goals for narrowing achievement gaps and improving teaching and learning in under-performing schools. Without the waiver, most Virginia schools would be labeled as failing for not meeting the law's goal of 100-percent proficiency for all students by 2014.

Staples says the waiver has allowed state schools to focus federal funds and other resources on "smart interventions that are producing positive results for students."

Indiana fallout in DMV: Bowser orders travel ban, McAuliffe woos businesses

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - The Associated Press, ABC 7 News - Tue, 31 Mar 2015 21:28:00 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA/AP) - D.C.'s mayor has banned city employees from traveling to Indiana because of a law that critics say would allow businesses to deny services to gay customers.

Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser issued an executive order on Tuesday banning travel to the state on official city business. The order will remain in effect until the law is repealed, clarified or blocked.

Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said Tuesday that he wants legislation by the end of the week to clarify that the law doesn't allow discrimination against gays and lesbians. Pence says the bill protects religious liberty.

Businesses and other groups have canceled events in Indiana in response to the law, and the governor of Virginia is courting Indiana businesses in the wake of the legislation.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office has issued an open letter to Indiana corporations saying Virginia is a business-friendly state that does "not discriminate against our friends and neighbors."

Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act prohibits state laws that "substantially burden" a person's ability to follow his or her religious beliefs.

In his letter, McAuliffe touted his record of promoting equal rights and preventing discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Arkansas about to adopt religious freedom law

WDBJ 7 National News - - Wed, 01 Apr 2015 00:03:11 GMT

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson now has to decide if he wants Mike Pence's headache.

The Arkansas House on Tuesday approved a religious freedom measure that mirrors the one Pence signed into law in Indiana -- sparking outrage from businesses, sports organizations and popular culture figures who said it opened the door to discrimination against gays and lesbians.

Hutchinson, a Republican in his first year in office, said Monday that he'd sign the measure -- but that was when lawmakers were still trying to find tweaks that ultimately eluded them.

"If this bill reaches my desk in similar form as to what has been passed in 20 other states then I will sign it," he said then.

A Hutchinson spokesman told CNN that the governor will release a public statement announcing what he's decided to do Wednesday morning -- likely around 11:30 a.m. Eastern time. He said there will be no public signing ceremony.

The perils Hutchinson faces were made clear Tuesday morning when Pence insisted he'd "fix" Indiana's law to make sure it doesn't allow businesses like Christian florists or bakers to turn away gay and lesbian customers -- which the bill's conservative supporters had said was one of their chief goals.

"Was I expecting this kind of backlash? Heavens no," Pence said.

Following Indiana, Arkansas becomes the second of what could be a spate of states to add religious freedom laws to their books this year. There are 14 other states considering similar proposals this year, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Advocates of the measures insist they're simply mimicking what the federal government did under President Bill Clinton, and what 19 other states had already done.

But the context has changed. The Supreme Court is poised to issue a ruling that could legalize same-sex marriage across the United States -- and social conservatives have come to view religious freedom laws as the next frontier in the culture clash over gay rights.

And Indiana's fight exposed another problem: Gays and lesbians lack the shield that a state anti-discrimination law that includes protections based on sexual orientation would offer -- and Pence has said he's not interested in changing that.

Making social conservatives' case harder is the intense opposition from business communities. In Arkansas, home-state giant Walmart was a leading critic of the religious freedom bill.

The other states where religious freedom bills have been introduced are Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Those efforts have stalled, though, in North Carolina and Georgia.

A Georgia bill hit a roadblock when a House member successfully amended anti-discrimination language into it.

And in North Carolina, Republican Gov. Pat McCrory has said he won't sign the measure into law, saying Monday in a radio interview that the proposal "makes no sense."

"What is the problem they're trying to solve?" McCrory said. "I haven't seen it at this point in time."

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.
