Loudoun County, Virginia (December 28, 2023) – The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) has charged a Reston man for filing a false stabbing report and embezzlement after two incidents in November.
On November 10, 2023, Fawad Fafa, 44, of Reston, filed a report with the LCSO claiming to have been a victim of a stabbing in the parking lot of the Dulles Town Center Mall in Sterling. Fafa reported that he left the mall and as he got into his vehicle, two males wearing masks approached his vehicle and stabbed him before fleeing in a dark-colored four-door sedan.
After a thorough investigation by detectives, it was determined that the stabbing report was fabricated and that Fafa had injured himself.
Additionally, on November 8, 2023, Fafa, an employee of the Sports Nation store, reported that during the overnight hours the store had been entered, and money was taken. After conducting an investigation, it was determined that Fafa had taken the money.
Fafa was arrested on December 15, 2023, and charged with two counts of Filing a False Police Report and Embezzlement. Fafa was transported to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center where he was released on December 16, 2023, on a $1,500 bond.
On December 19, 2023, at approximately 9:15 p.m., Fafa again entered the Sports Nation store in the Dulles Town Center Mall and forcibly removed money from the cash register. Additional charges were obtained for Burglary and Embezzlement, and Fafa was arrested by the Fairfax County Police Department and is being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center on the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office charges.
