LCSO Charge Sterling Man in Child Abuse Case

          Loudoun County, VA (July 20, 2020): The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Sterling man in a case involving abuse of a child. 

This case was initially reported to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office on June 13, 2020, when hospital staff notified LCSO that a three month old infant arrived at the emergency room by ambulance and was later found to have significant life threatening injuries.   The father of the infant, Mitchell Robert Dowd, 31 of Sterling was arrested on July 17, 2020 and charged with Felony Child Abuse.  

The infant survived but due to the nature of the injuries, has significant medical issues.

Dowd was transported to the Loudoun County adult Detention Center where he was released on a $20,000 bond.
