Police: ‘Inappropriate Comments’ Lead to Va. Square Assault

Police car lightsThree men were arrested early this morning after allegedly assaulting a man outside Darna Lounge (946 N. Jackson Street) in Virginia Square.

The assault came after the victim left the bar at 2:15 a.m., according to the Arlington County Police Department crime report.

“Three subjects were exiting the bar when they made some inappropriate comments to a female who was standing with the victim, who then said something back to them,” Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told ARLnow.com.

Fahad Alshequiq, 29, of Falls Church; Dede Dede, 34, of Dumfries; and Abdulaziz Alreshood, 29, of Arlington were arrested and charged with assault by mob. They are being held without bond.

The victim refused a medical transport.
