Weekly Incident Summary Report
December 21-27, 2006

MALICIOUS WOUNDING

Frontier Drive area

A man forced his way into a home on a street near Frontier Drive on Sunday, December 24. A 62-year-old woman was home alone when she heard a knock at the door sometime between 8 p.m. and 9:40 p.m. She answered the door and a man forced his way in. The suspect assaulted the victim as he entered, causing a puncture wound to her arm. Another family member came home and found the victim. The suspect was gone. The victim was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The suspect was described as a man wearing white or gray clothing.

Springfield Mall,  6600 Block:  *Police responded to 6668 Springfield Mall in reference to an altercation inside the mall. The altercation resulted in a person being stabbed. The victim was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital. Initial indications were that the injury may have been life-threatening. The officers at the mall were able to quickly obtain the suspect's name, who they located minutes later near the Barnes and Noble store located in a shopping strip across the street. The suspect was treated on the scene for minor injuries to his hands and taken into custody. It appears initially that both the victim and the suspect are adult men. The investigation is ongoing. Police charged an 18-year old from the Kingstowne-area with malicious wounding. Further investigation into the stabbing incident at the Springfield Mall determined that the suspect, Dashawn Callahan of 7309 Hollyford Lane, assaulted the victim who has been identified as a 19-year-old man from the

Hybla Valley area. Callahan and the victim apparently know each other and may have had an on-going dispute. The victim remains hospitalized and Callahan is being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
