Bristow Man Charged with Attempted Murder in Outlet Mall Stabbing

Leesburg, VA (December 29, 2021) – On December 28, 2021 at approximately 4:30 PM, the Leesburg Police Department’s Emergency Communications Center received a report that a 27-year-old female had been stabbed at the Leesburg Premium Outlets near suite 1173. The caller advised that the adult male suspect fled on foot, armed with a knife, towards the Sycamore Hill subdivision behind the Outlets. Officers immediately responded and located the suspect, 34-year-old Corinthian Witcher of Bristow, VA, near the intersection of Potomac Station Drive NE and Lilac Terrace NE. Witcher was taken into custody without further incident. The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where she is being treated for serious, but not life-threatening injuries to her upper body. It has been determined that the suspect and victim were known to each other. Witcher was identified as the sole suspect and there is no further danger to the public.

Corinthian Witcher has been charged with attempted murder and aggravated malicious wounding. He is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.

We would like to thank members of the community who provided our officers with the suspect’s description and direction of travel. The assistance of these witnesses led to the quick and safe apprehension of an armed violent suspect.

The incident remains under investigation by the Leesburg Police Department Criminal Investigation Section. Anyone who witnessed the incident and who has not already spoken to law enforcement is asked to contact Detective D. Moreau at 703-771-4500 or at [email protected].

We thought that it went without saying, however last night one of our officers had to remind a motorist that traveling 119 mph in a 45 mph zone is NEVER acceptable! Remember, we all play a part in #TrafficSafety. PLEASE drive at the posted speed limit! #SlowDown 🐢

I received a call from a man identifying himself as Joe Cannon, asking for donations for Leesburg police. Prior to the most recent call he left voicemails asking me to call Joe Cannon but no other information. If it's a scam you should release a PSA warning people of phony solicitation. If he is working in behalf of the Leesburg police or alumni association he should be fired. He's rude, and hangs up if he he thinks you aren't going to donate. With solicitors like him you won't gain any new supporters.
Shout out to all members of #LPD on this Law Enforcement Appreciation Day... thank you for all you do in keeping our Town of Leesburg safe for We The People!!!
Residents so often complain about policing....as a new owner of property in the Town of Leesburg, I want to offer a shout out for Deputy Holmes and his supervisor/coworker Lt. Cumberledge. As a buyer, I was annoyed by the added tax from the Town of Leesburg...not really sure what benefit it offered me. However, I have a "sensitive" issue involving the care and maintenance of my neighbor's house and its very gross and negative effects on the comfort of living in my property. Both of these Leesburg Police Dept personnel have continued to express true concern, sincere desire to help, and are THE ONLY County employees to offer the courtesy of response and willingness to get involved...not the Health Dept, not the Social Services Dept, and not the Zoning Dept.. I have been dealing with this issue since early November, and the only county employees offering their support and assistance are the Leesburg Town Police....THANK YOU!! I will show more constraint now when you check for stickers along the rt 15 bottleneck! :)
Just wanted to invite the LPD and followers to join the MFPSA (Military, Fire, Police Support Association's) page. We support our Military and First Responders! Come on down to the "Warehouse" in Leesburg and enjoy a beer on us! Just show your ID. Thank you for your service!
Just checking on something that public would be helpful to know. If you can't register a vehicle due to DMV appointments going out for months - you cannot drive the vehicle. A little bit of understanding leeway would go a long ways from the police department. If you have an appointment and a signed title there should be a way to drive. Either that or open up the DMVs. Everything else is open why can't the DMVs?
Well, the goons who have destroying cities across America have made it to our small town of Leesburg. The police seem to have identified the head monkies, but nothing was reported about arrests. What's the hold up.
This would look really a slick in the blue and white Leesburg police department colors! Not to mention practical and efficient! 🛵🛵🛵
Thank you to the officer who found my iPhone in Walmart, thank you and stay safe.
Oversight *IS* needed. Officers use § 46.2-716 to profile and harass motorists... they pretend the law says NO license plate cover is allowed when, in fact, the VA Code clearly states “if obscure.” If Dulles Greenway tag readers can capture a plate number at 55 mph, then LEOs shouldn’t be able to use a license plate cover as an excuse to stop a motorist. LEOs should not be allowed to use a Jim Crow law https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/drivers/#medical/med_forms. to harrass motorists by suspending their license for SIX MONTHS and should be required to have a supervisor signature before practing medicine without a license. Said med law needs to be updated so that citizens cannot harrass other citizens. LEOs have to take a psych test to be hired AND should also have to pass on Implicit bias test https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html. In addition, LoCo does NOT have a CASA program nor a true Restorative Justice Program and desperately needs them. http://restorativejustice.org/rj-library/the-burlington-restorative-justice-center-panel-process/4101/#sthash.4ctzRhwV.dpbs
Anything happening around Beecher and 441/27? There is a big back up.
I got you all donuts to thank you for everything you do for us especially with everything that’s going on right now. Sadly it turns out you can’t accept donations at this time but still thank you so much!!!
Huge thank you to Officer Parsons! My son didn’t realize the keys to these handcuffs were long gone. Fun fact, before my husband lost the keys to these he used them to arrest Ana Montes. So you touched history today as well as helped my ridiculous family out of a jam. Many, many thanks to living in a community with such great public servants!
