Report: Man Attacked Employees at Fox Mill Glory Days With Chain, Broke Into Nearby Home

A 33-year-old Herndon man faces a litany of charges after police say he attacked employees at a Fox Mill Center restaurant before breaking into a nearby home.

At about 12:37 a.m. Friday, police say Quan Anh Ly approached employees and patrons on the front patio of Glory Days Grill (2567 John Milton Drive) and began swinging a large chain while threatening them, sending them scrambling to lock him out. According to police:

“The suspect broke the front doors to the business with his chain, entered and continued to swing his chain at employees. He confronted the bartender, who was on the phone with police, and grabbed the phone from him, and then proceeded to break numerous glasses and bottles. The suspect walked to the rear of the restaurant, encountering another employee. The suspect struck the 58-year-old man, injuring his hand, and exited out the back.”

Police say they were called to a home in the 2500 block of Freetown Drive a short time later for a reported burglary. The homeowner told them he was awakened by the sound of glass breaking and found that a man had broken both windows by the front door. The suspect fled the scene when the homeowner shouted, police say, and he was found beneath a nearby car. He was apprehended at the scene and charged with malicious wounding, attempted malicious wounding, burglary and felony destruction of property.

More charges may be issued against the man as the investigation continues, police say.
