On July 8th, the Warrenton Police Department (WPD) was called to Fats Warrenton on West Lee Highway shortly after midnight for a fight in progress.

Upon arriving at the scene police located several victims and witnesses.

Two victims had to be transported to the Fauquier Hospital for wounds to their face.

However, neither the victims nor witnesses could identify the suspect. 

Over the last several weeks, WPD viewed video evidence and conducted follow up interviews with both the victims and witnesses.

Police were able to identify Aaron Degeneff, 25, of Bristow, Virginia as their suspect.

He was arrested on August 29th and charged with two counts of malicious wounding.

He is being held in the Fauquier Adult Detention Center.
