Loudoun County Authorities are assaulted during arrest
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office reports receiving a call from the Sterling Costco about a larceny in progress.
When Deputies arrived Tues. July 26 around 1 p.m. they confronted the subject who began to resist.
Ashburn resident Sady Ashkar not only resisted but began to assault the Deputies.
One Deputy was able to tase Ashkar to no effect.
Ashkar began to flee towards the front of the store where he was confronted by employees and bystanders stopping his escape.
Ashkar continued to resist at one point tackling a Deputy and grabbing the Officer’s taser and throwing it.
Then Ashkar tried to acquire the Deputy’ s holstered pistol.
By that time other Officers arrived and were able to tase him again before he was placed under arrest.
As Ashkar was being evaluated by Emergency Medical Personnel he assaulted a Loudoun County Rescue Medic.
Ashkar was taken to a local hospital for evaluation before transportation to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center where he is held without bond.
The 32 year old Ashkar was served multiple warrants for assault on law enforcement and rescue personnel.
Ashkar is also charged with trying to disarm an Officer, resisting arrest along with larceny and shoplifting charges.
One Deputy was transported to the hospital treated and released for minor injuries.
Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is grateful to the citizens and employees for their assistance in the arrest.
