Police executing search warrant off Ravensworth Road

UPDATED July 13, 11 p.m.  A couple of blocks in a townhouse community on Ravensworth Road, Annandale, have been blocked off with police tape since the early hours of July 13 as Fairfax County Police are carrying out a search for an “explosive device,” according to a police officer on the scene. The occupants of two adjacent houses were evacuated.

The suspect, Marc Cassell, 36, was arrested by Fairfax County police and is awaiting extradition to Montgomery County, Md.
The investigation, which began at 2 a.m., is related to a domestic dispute. A report by WTOP radio says the suspect had used explosives to try to force his way into the home of his in-laws in the 11400 block of Marcliff Road in Bethesda, then fled to Fairfax County. Two devices had been detonated, one outside the front door, and one by the garage, causing significant damage.

According to news reports, the resident of the house told police that Cassell, 36, is involved in a divorce and custody dispute with his daughter.

Cassells Facebook page indicates he is from Annandale and went to Annandale High School.
