Weekly Incident Summary Report
June 15-21, 2006

ARREST IN INDECENT EXPOSURE

On Tuesday, June 20, Michael Andrew Viveiros, 38, of 9107 Ashland Woods Lane in Lorton was arrested on four counts of indecent liberties with a minor. Detectives were able to develop a lead after receiving a tip from a citizen. The four charges stem from two incidents of indecent exposure. The first incident occurred on Tuesday, December 27, 2005 around 5 p.m., in the 7400 block of Larne Lane. On that day an 11-year-old girl saw a man in her backyard and he exposed himself to her. Investigation revealed that the suspect approached the girl on two other occasions claiming to be looking for his cat. The second incident occurred on June 11 in the 7800 block of Seafarer Way. Four children, ranging from 5 to 8 years old, were approached by a man who tried to talk to them. The children knew the man was a stranger and walked away from him. He approached them a second time and offered to show them a box of rabbits. The children followed the man a short distance. When they stopped he told them to close their eyes. The man convinced one of them, an 8-year-old Lorton-area girl, to walk further with him near a wood line.  Once at this location the man exposed himself to the girl. The girl ran away from the man and told her parents. Detectives believe Viveiros is also responsible for a suspicious person complaint from April 13 when a man approached a group of young girls in the 7300 block of Rhonda Drive. The man attempted to get the girls to follow him to look at stray cats.

ROBBERY

Old Keene Mille Road 6900  Block:  A robbery occurred at 6909 Old Keene Mill Road at Manassas Video Club. On Monday, June 19 around 9:40 p.m., a man entered the store and demanded money. The clerk, a 26-year-old Springfield-area man, placed the cash register money tray on the counter and the suspect took an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect then fled the area in a blue four-door Honda Accord that was driven by a second suspect. A vehicle description was broadcast. Approximately 30 minutes later, the vehicle was observed by a Mount Vernon District patrol officer at Richmond Highway and Arlington Drive. The officer stopped the vehicle for an equipment infraction. A subsequent investigation connected the occupants to the robbery. The two suspects, Keith Partnel Turner, 19, of 3601 Lacy Boulevard, in the Falls Church area and Philip Jamal Smith, 19, of 5778 Westchester Street, Alexandria, were arrested and taken to the Adult Detention Center. Both men were charged with robbery.
