Police Ask for Help Finding Fugitive Accused of Clarendon Stabbing

Arlington police are asking for the public’s help in locating a fugitive accused of a violent crime.

Theodore Li, 35, is accused of stabbing someone multiple times with a knife early on a Sunday morning in Clarendon’s nightlife district. He was arrested without incident by officers patrolling the nightlife district that night in December 2019, but was eventually released pending trial.

The Alexandria resident later failed to appear in court and a bench warrant was issued on April 6, 2020. The police department said it asked for public assistance yesterday, after more than a year of Li on the lam, because it has “exhausted all leads.”

“ACPD’s Warrant Unit… has exhausted all leads related to the whereabouts of Li and is seeking the public’s assistance in locating him,” department spokeswoman Ashley Savage told ARLnow. “Anyone with information related to this investigation is asked to contact the Arlington County Police Department’s Warrant Unit at [email protected] and reference case number 2019-12150013. Information may also be reported anonymously through the Arlington County Crime Solvers hotline at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).”

Savage said that Li’s release was “handled by the courts” and deferred to the court system for further comment on the circumstances surrounding his release.

The victim in the case suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
