A Manassas-area man was arrested Saturday after, police said, he threw a hammer at an acquaintance’s vehicle and tried to force the other car off the road.
At 8:23 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 2, police responded to an area near Hoadly and Dumfries roads in the mid-county area, to investigate a fight, Prince William County police spokeswoman Renee Carr said in a news release.
The victim, a 35-year-old man, reported to police that he and an acquaintance, identified as Marco Alexander Monroy Cruz, were involved in an argument that escalated.
Police said the victim was attempting to leave the area in his vehicle with Monroy Cruz “drove his own vehicle aggressively towards the victim,” Carr said in the news release.
Police said Monroy Cruz then “the accused threw a hammer at the victim’s vehicle and, at one point, struck the victim’s vehicle with a different hammer.”
The victim drove away and Monroy Cruz then “attempted to force him off the road,” Carr said in the news release.
The victim called police and Monroy Cruz fled the scene, police said. No injuries were reported.
Police obtained warrants for Monroy Cruz’s arrest and he was located and taken into custody by the Loudoun County Sherriff’s Department on Aug. 3, Carr said.
Monroy Cruz, 37, of the 7600 block of Wedgewood Drive, in Manassas is charged with aggressive driving, throwing missiles at an occupied car, hit and run and destruction of property. His court date is pending and information about his bond status was not immediately available.
