Recent violent incidents around Vienna included a confrontation between a man and two others leaving his apartment and a battle between a local resident and an Amazon delivery truck.

The weekly Vienna Police Highlights offers a look at the calls for police around town, including notes on arrests and other incidents.

One of the more serious incidents this week involved a resident reportedly being assaulted in the 200 block of Cedar Lane on Thursday, Sept. 22, after confronting two men leaving his apartment.

“A resident reported parking his vehicle in the parking lot when he observed two men leaving his apartment,” the report said. “When he asked the men why they were in his apartment, they assaulted him and left the area in a vehicle.”

The wounds were treated on-site, and the report said it was later determined the two men leaving the apartment were acquaintances of a woman renting a room from the resident.

After obtaining a warrant charging assault and battery, a 23-year-old Vienna man was arrested and is being held on a $1,000 bond.

Another altercation occurred at 100 E Street SE when a resident attacked an Amazon delivery van.

According to the report, the incident took place on Sunday, Sept. 25, around 10 a.m:

An Amazon driver parked in a residential parking space in the townhouse complex to make a delivery. A resident of the complex became agitated with the driver and, as the driver was attempting to drive away, the resident kicked her vehicle causing damage to the door.
