Virginian faces charges
Leavenworth County Sheriff's officers arrested a Virginia man this week on charges he attacked three Leavenworth residents.
About 1:15 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 31, reports indicate, a 30-year-old New Church, Va., man attacked the residents after they returned to their home in the 18700 block of High Prairie Road.
He had told one of the residents, a 42-year-old woman, he wanted to speak with her. She refused and said she wanted to go to bed, which angered him, reports said. He struck her, then broke her bedroom door down and struck her again. He then struck two other residents, a 48-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman. The suspect ran out the back door and into woods when officers arrived, reports said.
The suspect returned later, which prompted residents to call 911.
Officers arrived and pursued the suspect by foot from 187th and High Prairie Road to 195th and Bauserman Road, where three state troopers and an officer took him into custody. He was arrested for obstruction and aggravated battery, reports said.
