A Clarendon man has been arrested and charged with attacking a worker who was washing his windows.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon, at one of the residential buildings on the 1200 block of N. Garfield Street, along Clarendon Blvd.

“At approximately 3:45 p.m. on April 12, police were dispatched to the report of an assault. Upon arrival, officers met with the victim who stated that he was working as a window washer when he lowered himself onto the suspect’s balcony, removed his harness and prepared to clean the windows,” Arlington County police said in a crime report today.

“The suspect exited the residence and began yelling at the victim, during which the suspect allegedly threw the victim’s safety equipment out of his reach and pushed the victim,” the crime report continues. “A second window washer intervened and the two were able to safely remove themselves from the balcony. No injuries were reported.”

The 50-year-old suspect was taken into police custody “without incident,” the crime report says. He was held without bond and charged with abduction and attempted malicious wounding.

Arlington County police typically do not provide an exact address for the location of alleged crimes.
