On July 28, a Reston resident was arrested in connection with a burglary on the 1400 block of Beaumeadow Court in Centreville. Chase Koon, 21, was arrested after police saw him attempt to enter the home through the front door.
Police responded to the scene when a resident called saying that someone was outside the home and was going to hurt their son. The suspect tried to get into the house by breaking windows and forcing the door open, according to Fairfax County Police Department. The homeowner was hit by the door when the man pushed it open, but was not injured.
Koon was arrested and charged with assault and battery, burglary with intent to assault, destruction of property, possession of marijuana and disorderly conduct.
Immediately after being released, police said Koon called police from a business on the 14000 block of Penrose Plaza and said he was going to harm employees there. Koon was arrested again and charged with disorderly conduct. He was then held without bond.
