Police: Man Took Uber to Ex’s House to Beat Up Her New Boyfriend

(Updated at 4 p.m. on 12/23/21) A Centreville, Va. man is facing charges after police say he took an Uber to Clarendon and then proceeded to break into his ex-girlfriend’s home in order to beat up her new boyfriend.

Steve [Redacted], 25, has been charged with Assault and Battery and “Entering a Dwelling at Night with the Intent to Commit Assault and Battery,” according to Arlington County Police.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. this past Saturday, but was not reported to the authorities until the next day, said ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage.

Police say [Redacted] took an Uber ride with a friend to the 1200 block of N. Danville Street. He broke into the house, entered his ex-girlfriend’s bedroom and began punching the man in bed with his ex, said Savage.

Both victims fled the house. [Redacted] then allegedly punched a hole in the wall, before leaving the house to search for the victims. Upon finding them, he began repeatedly punching the man again, Savage said.

[Redacted’s] friend, who was waiting in the Uber, saw what was happening and ran over to calm down [Redacted] and break up the fracas, said Savage. The victims again fled, running down the street, and [Redacted] and his friend reportedly got back into the Uber and left the scene. A roommate of the female victim eventually picked her and her boyfriend up and brought them back to the house.

The male victim did not have visible injuries when he reported the crime on Sunday, but did report lumps on his head, according to Savage. [Redacted] was arrested and now faces the two misdemeanor charges. His next court date is scheduled for April 5.

The Arlington-Aachen High School exchange is returning this summer and currently accepting applicants.

The sister-city partnership started in 1993 by the Arlington Sister Cities Association, which seeks to promote Arlington’s international profile through a variety of exchanges in education, commerce, culture and the arts. The exchange, scheduled June 17th to July 4th, includes a two-week homestay in Aachen plus three days in Berlin. Knowledge of the German language is not required for the trip.

Former participants have this to say:

_”The Aachen exchange was an eye-opening experience where I was fully immersed in the life of a German student. I loved biking through the countryside to Belgium, having gelato and picnics in the town square, and hanging out with my German host student’s friends. My first time out of the country, the Aachen exchange taught me to keep an open mind, because you never know what could be a life changing experience.” – Kelly M._
