Window Broken During Fight at Bob & Edith’s Diner

An early morning fight resulted in a broken door, a broken window and two arrests at Bob & Edith’s Diner on Columbia Pike over the weekend.

Police say Zachary Szabo, 23, assaulted Jamel Toms, 26, inside the restaurant around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 31. Toms then “became disorderly, broke the restaurant door, and threw a glass sugar container at a plate glass window, shattering it,” according to the daily Arlington County police report.

Toms, of Alexandria, was charged with “Releasing a Missile Into an Occupied Dwelling” and two felony counts of Destruction of Property. He was held on a $10,000 bond.

Szabo, of Woodbridge, was charged with Assault and Battery. He was held without bond.

The damage to the restaurant was still visible as of yesterday evening.
