From Stafford Sheriff’s Office
A disturbance on Friday night led to the arrest of a suspect by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office on charges of attempted aggravated malicious wounding of an officer.
On December 1, 2017 at approximately 11:15 p.m., Deputy Steven Epple responded to a disturbance in the back parking lot of Cavalier Family Skating Center on Jefferson Davis Highway. The deputy identified several males standing near a vehicle parked adjacent to a dumpster and asked them to leave because the business was closed.
The individuals initially failed to comply with the deputy’s request. Eventually, they got into the vehicle and one of the males, later identified as Trevon Wilkins, 27, climbed into the driver’s seat. The deputy illuminated the area with his flashlight to provide visibility for Wilkins to back up his vehicle.
Instead of exiting the parking lot, Wilkins pulled up next to another vehicle, stopped and then began driving the vehicle straight toward the deputy at a high rate of speed. The deputy drew his firearm and shouted for Wilkins to stop, but the driver continued to increase his speed. The vehicle came in close proximity to the deputy who managed to jump out of the path of the vehicle. During this time, the driver’s side window was open.
The deputy ran to his cruiser, called for backup and followed Wilkins’ vehicle. He conducted a traffic stop as the vehicle was exiting the parking lot. One of the passengers fled into the woods and was not located by law enforcement.
Wilkins was taken into custody and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond. He is charged with attempted aggravated malicious wounding of an officer.
