UPDATE: Arrest, Charges Placed in Franconia-Area Barricade
The suspect, Sayed Robbie Javid, 19, of 6200 Larkspur Drive in the Alexandria-area of Fairfax County, involved in last night’s barricade situation, has been charged with Assault on a Police Officer (VA Code: § 18.2-57(c)) and Falsely Summoning Police (VA Code: § 18.2-461). He is held on no bond at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
When Javid initially called the Department of Public Safety Communications (9-1-1) around 4:53 p.m., he allegedly claimed there was someone in the home who did not live or belong there. An investigation determined he had been alone in the home at the time he called 9-1-1 and after police were on scene. Major Crimes Division and Crime Scene Section detectives also determined the pistol Javid fired in the direction of arriving officers, was a starter revolver. This revolver fires cartridges which produce a muzzle flash, muzzle smoke, and the same repeating explosive sound of an actual bullet being fired. Based on these elements, officers’ instincts were to find immediate cover and safety, as they believed the pistol they saw and sounds they heard were from a real firearm.
The incident seems to have stemmed from a family argument that occurred earlier in the day. Police had responded to the home around 9 a.m. for a father and son arguing over the son’s poor conduct. The incident apparently escalated into a physical altercation and police charged the father with assault on a family member.
Weapons recovered by Crime Scene Section detectives; alleged to be in Javid’s possession:
