Fairfax County Police Two men abducted a woman in Sterling and drove her to Reston Sunday evening, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

A man assaulted his estranged wife and forced her into a vehicle in Sterling just before 7:30 p.m. Sunday night, a witness told deputies. A male accomplice then drove the kidnapper and the victim to Reston.

Authorities arrested 39-year-old Alex Munguia and his accomplice, 45-year-old Marlen Almendarez-Juarez, in connection with the abduction. The two men are being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond. 

Reston police are also on the lookout for a hungry burglar who broke into a home on North Shore Drive yesterday.

A resident who lives on the 11500 block of North Shore Drive told police that someone entered their apartment through an unlocked bedroom window, ate some food and then left without taking anything else.

Police did not release a description of the burglar.

FCPD’s Reston Station yesterday also received reports of:


  • 13300 block of Covered Wagon Lane, jewelry from residence
  • 1800 block of Discovery Street, bag from business

  • Chuck Morningwood

    We just come here to work.

    • Why do you bother?

      “We just come here to be disruptive”


      • Mike M

        Yes. They do that too.

      • The Constitutionalist

        Starting to ask myself why you don’t take your own name’s advice. Oh, because you’re as bad as the rest of us “deplorables”.

  • Mike M

    Proudly wear your safety pins for Munguia and Almendarez-Juarez! You’ve got their backs!

  • Reston Realist

    We should organize a protest – why were these guys locked-up? Reston should become a sanctuary quasi-city

    • Mike M

      Oh they might try it. I am surprised Fairfax has not gone that way!

  • Sickened

    Racially motivated comments are now the norm in our post trump white empowered world.
    Way to go Reston!

    I suppose the “ilk” should be expecting a protracted stance of hand-wringing from the “posses”, now that their lolly has been snatched from their sticky mouths…no more Kumbaya, tsk, tsk, tsk…

    • DumberNBagOfHammers

      I suspect you were trying to be clever, but your comment makes no sense to me at all. Could you maybe dumb it down a bit so I can understand?

      • Jenny Gibbers

        What hes saying is that if we had a female abducted and taken into Reston on a more frequent basis we would have national unity in no time.

      • FoetusBlow

        I suspect you are trying to be cleverer,DNBOH, so for your pleasure …I suppose the “deplorables” should be expecting a protracted stance of hand-wringing from the “angry demonstrators”, now that the “Promises of Hope and Change” have been inevitably been broken by their messiahs…tsk, tsk, tsk…. alas, I’m throwing them and you a peace offering… https://youtu.be/GKNX6dieVcc
