Man assaulted at house in Barcroft Terrace



3904 Melvern Place [Google Maps]

A huge amount of police activity disrupted the quiet streets of Barcroft Terrace in Mason District Tuesday night, as dozens of police cruisers, firetrucks, and ambulances descended on Melvern Place, a neighbor reports.

According to a Fairfax County Police spokesperson, there had been a fight between two men, and a 28-year-old man was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Joel Palacios Vasquez, 44, of the Alexandria area of Fairfax County was taken into custody and charged with malicious wounding.

According to a neighbor, the scene of the crime, 3904 Melvern Place, is an illegal boarding house, and one of the tenants was drunk and attacked a man with a machete. The police would not provide additional details beyond what is in the daily police blotter. The incident occurred Columbia Pike and Holmes Run Stream Valley Park.

  1. Wait? Did the assault occur at the house or the park (i.e. MS-13 hang out?)

  2. This is another reason to get these people the heck out of our District. Zoning should be called in and shut that place down and exterminate the vermin.

    They provide absolutely no value to our community.

    Return the SOBs to sender.

    1. Sadly the district welcomes this type of housing situation. Heck they even want to build more housing so they can stuff multi-families into one apt. with more kids overcrowding our schools even further while the taxpayer flips the bill. Time for new leadership who will address and do something about these issues plaguing the community. Zoning won't do crap either, if they did overcrowding schools would be eased considerably. Enforcing laws, huh, county/district officials won't stand for that.

    2. "exterminate the vermin."

      Whatever this individual did, this kind of rhetoric is obscene and hateful. No human beings should be called vermin. And no one should judge other people based on their ethnicity. BTW if we had considered having fights a disqualification for coming to america, we would have closed the doors sometime back in the 1830s.

  3. No one menitoned ethnicity. I interpreted the above blogger's note as being specific to the individual, which I would qualify as undersirable.

    And for all of you that think this "vermin" is appropriate trash for us to live amongst, then you should leave your front door unlocked. Maybe even start a machete collection that you could provide to your welcomed visitors.

    I am not sure what is more dangerous to our community; the trash or the idiots in Mason?

  4. living next to a boarding house for the past 2 years , I can verify that if these homes are emptied of Human residents, there will be LOTS of vermin to exterminate.

    I've lived in my house more than 20 years, yet now have snakes, rats and roaches on my property.

    1. I completely agree and I've voted for her the entire time I've lived in Mason District. She needs to go. If ANY party puts up a decent candidate, I will gladly vote for them just to get rid of a Bad Penny.

  7. You need to look at what is going on at the Texas border now. This problem is only going to get worse unless we have our own "regime change" in Mason District and the country more generally.

    1. Amen to that. A complete overhaul of leadership in the Mason District is exactly what is needed.
