A Leesburg man is being treated at a local hospital after allegedly being attacked by an acquaintance about 12:30 a.m. today, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
Anthony C. Pearce II, a 20 year old from Powhatan, VA, is being charged with aggravated malicious wounding for his apparent involvement in the incident.
Kraig Troxell, the sheriff’s office public information officer, said Pearce and the victim were driving in a car together along Rt. 15 when they stopped at a gas station just south of Leesburg. “They got into some sort of argument that resulted in a physical altercation,” Troxell said.
Pearce is being held without bond at the Loudoun Adult Detention Center. The victim is expected to fully recover, Troxell said.
