Uber driver beaten in Stafford County

From the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office: 

On July 20, 2016 at approximately 7:30 p.m. deputies were dispatched to an Assault and Battery call in the England Run neighborhood.  The victim was an Uber driver who had struck several residential mailboxes with his vehicle in an attempt to flee from his assailant.

The victim, a 65-year-old man had started driving for Uber only two days prior, when he responded to pick up a passenger near the Beth Sholom Temple on Lyons Blvd.  The driver was advised by Uber that the passenger was to be taken to the nearby McDonalds on Warrenton Road.  Once inside the vehicle, the passenger redirected the driver from his original destination, stating that he needed to retrieve something from his residence.  Once they arrived in a more secluded area, a cul-da-sac on June Court, the suspect began to strike the driver in the head with an in-ground solar light fixture and then began to choke him.  During the assault the car kept slowly moving striking several mailboxes along the street.  The victim sustained injuries to his neck and lower left leg that required medical care.

Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office developed leads with the cooperation of Uber and identified a 16-year-old juvenile suspect in this case.   Detective B. L. Surles obtained juvenile petitions on July 21, 2016 and later that day the suspect was apprehended on Shasta Place in England Run.  He was charged with Malicious Wounding, Strangulation, Abduction and Attempted Robbery.  He is being held at the Juvenile Detention Facility.

Man seeking sex from 13-year-old sentenced to 10 years

From Eastern District of Virginia:

James Aubrey Brown, IV, 40, of Woodbridge, who was convicted by a federal jury on charges of attempted coercion and enticement of a minor on March 3, was sentenced today to 10 years in prison for his crimes. Brown was also sentenced to five years of supervised release and ordered to register as a sex offender upon release from prison.

According to court records and evidence presented at trial, Brown responded to a Craigslist ad purportedly posted by a 13-year-old girl living on Marine Corps Base Quantico.  Over a period of 12 days and an exchange of over 275 emails, Brown repeatedly pressed the girl to meet and engage in sexual acts, including oral and vaginal sex. He also solicited nude photos of the girl.  Ultimately, he arranged to come to Marine Corps Base Quantico to have sex with the girl.  Over email, he directed her as to what to wear and what do when he arrived.  On the morning of Sept. 14, 2015, Brown arrived at the meeting location where he was arrested for attempting to persuade a person he believed to be a 13 year-old to engage in sexual activity that would be criminal under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and Jeremy Gauthier, Special Agent in Charge of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) Washington D.C. Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Liam O’Grady.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Whitney Dougherty Russell and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Longobardo prosecuted the case.
