After Hot Pursuit, State Police Arrest Carjacking Suspect

Virginia State Police arrested a Caroline County Man and a juvenile in connection with a carjacking that started in Reston on Wednesday (June 19).

Police believe Jaquan McNeil, 21, of Ruther Glen, and a juvenile suspect, assaulted a man as he was leaving his car on the 11400 block of Isaac Newtown Square at around 5 a.m.

The suspects then stole the BMW X5 and sped down I-95 when state police spotted them, according to police.

An officer spotted the car traveling south near a line marker in Prince William County and called more troopers to help. As police approached, the car swerved suddenly to the right shoulder and sped away from approaching law enforcement.

The pursuit continued for some time until the car crashed into a curve on the exit ramp and struck the guardrail.

McNeil fled the scene on foot, but was arrested a short while later. He was charged with one felony count of eluding police, one count of driving on a suspended license, one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count of reckless driving. McNeil is being held at the Stafford County Jail. 

The 15-year-old passenger was taken into custody without incident. Both suspects declined medical assistance for injuries that happened during the crash.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
