Two stabbed, one fatally, in Arlington; suspect in custody

WASHINGTON — Two people were stabbed, one fatally, Friday night in Arlington following a domestic incident.

Arlington County Police say the stabbing occurred shortly after 8 p.m. in the 100 block of S. Glebe Road. This is the first homicide in Arlington County this year.

One man was suffering from serious injuries and was transported to George Washington University Hospital Trauma Center where he was pronounced dead. The other, a juvenile male, sustained minor injuries and provided police with a detailed account of the night’s events. Detectives discovered a number of inconsistencies in his report, which led them to believe that his account was false.

Arlington County Police have determined that the assault was the result of a domestic incident that occurred at the 3600 block of 3rd Street S. and have arrested a 17-year-old relative of the victim with murder and stabbing while committing a felony.

Police are asking for anyone with information about this incident to contact Detective S. Bertollini of the Arlington County Police Department’s Homicide/Robbery Unit at 703-228-4243.
