(Updated at 2:20 p.m.) A man was awoken last week when another man barged into his bedroom and attempted to beat him with a cane, according to the latest Arlington County crime report.

The alleged incident happened last Tuesday morning. The victim suffered injuries to his hands from the cane and was also punched in the head, according to police. He required stitches for his injuries, we’re told.

From the crime report:

MALICIOUS WOUNDING, 02/26/13, 4000 block of N. 7th Street. At 9:05 am February 26, a subject forced entry into a room where a victim was sleeping. The subject swung a cane at the victim and then began to punch the victim several times in the face. The victim attempted to flee the room to safety, but the subject bit the victim on his upper left leg. The victim was eventually able to break free and had to flee the room through a window to get to safety. A roommate of the victim was able to call the police. Both the victim and the suspect were transported to Virginia Hospital Center for their injuries. Hubert Leon Willoughby, 52, of Arlington, VA was arrested and charged with malicious wounding.

      I never knew you mixed PCP with Parsley. Couid you use Cilantro at a pinch?

      • Been there, done that.

        It’s called “Green”. And it’s not “mixed”, per se, PCP is a liquid and it sprayed on parsley. Or marijuana, but that’s more expensive. Interesting high, but it is known to cause physic damage, so I would discourage its use.

        • Hank

          So you’re saying don’t do PCP? Okay, good advice. Thanks.

            And stay in school, kids.

          “physic damage”? Huh?

          Were you looking for “psychic”?

      • novasteve

        Crap, I better stop growing cilantro

      • LynneRoslynettoHotspur

        Oh good heavens NO, cliantro is too strong, it would throw off the flavor. If you don’t grow you own parsley, I suggest finding some at a local farmers market.

    Time for an old man with a cane roundup!

  • Arlington Chris

    If they outlaw canes only outlaws will have canes.

      This is why conservatives don’t make good comedians.

      He was beaten with a candy cane?

  • Lloyd Xmas

    Were they wearing orange and blue tuxedos by any chance?

  • William Zanzinger

    Did he twirl the cane on his diamond ring finger?

  • Nick_West

    I wonder if this is the same cane wielding man who a couple of weeks I witnessed intimidating a lady as she tried to park near Whole Food off Clarendon Blvd. I’ve see this charter before in the neighborhood and he’s a menace to the Clarendon-Court House area. Sadly, I believe we taxpayers subsidize him living in the Arlington as I’ve seen him hanging outside those so-called affordable housing units near Route 50.

      Your assumptions made me chuckle. A menace to the Clarendon-Courthouse area? At least you know what hyperbole is. While aforementioned cane wielding miscreant is branded public enemy number one by some limp noodle suburbanite, most urban dwellers would hardly bat an eyelash at characters far more eccentric and menacing. Have you ever witnessed people trying to park at the Whole Foods in Clarendon? I’m outraged anytime I drive past it headed east. Whoever was tasked with planning the parking lot, which causes huge backups on Clarendon Blvd, should be force-fed habanero peppers without any milk. Good day sir!

      • JP

        Oh, awh hells bells, you’re such a sophisticated urbaner–NOT. Sounds like Nick has described some derelict hanging around Clarendon, which as a Clarendon resident, I’ve noticed more of those types in the pasted couple of months. So, eat a couple of your habanero pepers in DC and a good day too you sir!

        • ARL

          I think I’ve seen you hanging around well-known areas of drug dealing and prostitution, JP.

    Where is the 4000 block of 7th st N? That would have to run from Quincy to Randolph st, and that’s the DARPA building.
