Four Arrested After Stabbing Near Ballston

Police car (file photo)Four men were arrested after a stabbing near Ballston early Saturday morning.

A large fight was reported in the area of N. Glebe Road and Henderson Road just past midnight. Police arrived on scene and took three suspects into custody. One additional suspect tried to flee the scene and was apprehended a short distance away, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

Police then found a man who had been stabbed, who had fled from the scene earlier but collapsed in front of Union Jack’s (671 N. Glebe Road). The man was stabbed seven times in the torso, upper body, groin and thigh area, Sternbeck said. Staff from the restaurant came out with towels to try to put pressure on his wounds.

The 32-year-old victim was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries. Sternbeck said the man was combative and uncooperative with officers.

The four suspects who were taken into custody were all charged with malicious wounding in connection with the stabbing. Police identified the suspects as 23-year-old David Bhatti of Arlington, 24-year-old Heber Amaya-Gallo of Arlington, 20-year-old Gustavo Lopez of Annandale, and 23-year-old Naveed Mughal of Arlington.

Both Amaya-Gallo and Lopez have recent arrest records in Arlington. Amaya-Gallo has been previously arrested for malicious wounding and assault on a police officer, and Lopez has been arrested for grand theft auto and fleeing from police.

All four suspects are being held without bond.
