Police responded to the intersection of Lorton Road and Armistead Road on Thursday, July 30 shortly after 5 a.m. for the report of a pedestrian that had been struck by a vehicle. Patrol officers arrived along with fire and rescue units. They assessed the situation and summoned Crash Reconstruction Detectives to the scene. The initial investigation determined that a 70-year-old Lorton man, Farman Batalia, was walking across Lorton Road near the intersection of Armistead Road. At that time, a 2003 GMC truck, driven by a 63-year-old Lorton man, was traveling east on Lorton Road at Armistead Road. The truck hit Batalia in the eastbound lanes of Lorton Road. The driver of the truck remained on the scene and checked on the victim. Batalia was pronounced dead at the scene. It has not yet been determined if speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.

Join Us for a Worship Watch Meeting; September 19

View Worship Watch video HERE

Fairfax County Police implemented a new program in February 2015, modeled after Neighborhood Watch, aiming to help keep houses of worship safe and crime-free. Houses of worship are not immune to criminal activity, as seen in the tragic incident in South Carolina last month. While violent crimes are not routine, common crimes that are targeted towards them include larceny, burglary, vandalism and arson.

042915WorshipWatch1

“Worship Watch” encourages congregants to become more involved in reducing the opportunity for crimes to occur on facility premises. More than 100 people from a wide variety of faith communities attended the first two meetings held last Spring. Many who couldn’t attend requested that additional meetings.

In response to resident requests, Fairfax County Police are hosting another Worship Watch workshop, free of charge, on Saturday, September 19 from 8:30 a.m.-12 noon, at the Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 1301 Collingwood Road, Alexandria, 22308.

Attendees will receive crime prevention training, facility security assessments, information on how to receive crime alerts and community information, and other valuable crime prevention tools.

The meeting is OPEN to all, and is aimed towards anyone who is interested in learning how to help keep Fairfax County safe.

RSVP to attend this meeting by contacting MPO Robert Urps by email at Robert.urps@fairfaxcounty.gov.

For questions or more information, contact him at 703-360-8928.
