The Vienna Police Department responded to two separate calls for suspicious vehicles following residents last week, one of which involved a man calling a woman to his car.
A woman reported at 3:37 p.m. Feb. 15 she was walking on Glyndon Street near Locust Street SE when she was approached by a man in a burgundy four-door vehicle, who summoned her to talk to him.
She declined his request and walked away.
She told Police she observed the same vehicle in the area on two other occasions, on the same day, but the driver did not attempt to interact with her during those times. The vehicle left the area before officers arrived on scene.
A woman reported at 9:49 p.m. Feb. 16 she was walking on Marshall Road SW when she noticed a red truck parked in front of a residence. She said the driver of the truck appeared to be watching her.
The woman returned to her vehicle and as she drove off the driver of the truck began to follow her, she told police. The woman returned home where the truck pulled in front of her house, at which time she called the police department. As she was calling the police the vehicle left the area.
A woman was arrested last week for allegedly attempting to enter the Vienna Woods Swim Club after dark and resisting her subsequent arrest.
While responding to assist another officer at 11:07 p.m. Feb. 19 on an unrelated incident, an officer saw a woman entering the park at Vienna Woods Swim Club after dark.
When the officer approached the individual, she ignored his commands to stop. When he did stop the woman, he determined she was intoxicated.
Police arrested Ana Delia Amaya-Trejo, 48, of Vienna, for drunk in public. While attempting to place Ms. Amaya-Trejo in handcuffs she began to actively resist. Amaya-Trejo was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center where she was charged with Drunk in Public and Resisting Arrest. She was to be held until she was sober.
