Stafford, VA. Several suspects were arrested on Friday by deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office on numerous charges, including assault on a law enforcement officer, following a larceny incident at a local convenience store.

On May 8 2020, at approximately 6:57 p.m., Deputy West responded to the Wawa located at 72 Austin Park Drive for a larceny in progress. The 9-1-1 caller reported that a green colored vehicle was parked outside of the store and she believed the occupants had stolen items from the store.

Upon arrival, Deputy West observed the vehicle leaving the parking lot. In the meantime, Sgt. Flick arrived at the Wawa and reviewed the security camera footage. He determined that a larceny had occurred and that one of the subjects had stolen a bag of jolly ranchers.

After receiving the information from Sgt. Flick, Deputy West initiated a traffic stop in the area of Pilot Knob Loop. The suspect vehicle pulled over and several occupants exited and left the scene. The driver remained on scene and was identified as Vincent Comfort, 39, of Woodbridge. He was uncooperative and belligerent. He attempted to drive away and subsequently resisted arrest. A struggle ensued, and the suspect kicked Deputy Mangan and Sgt. Simpson. He also assaulted Deputy Vaughn. Eventually, the suspect was taken into custody.

The suspect was transported to a local hospital for evaluation after sustaining a laceration to his forehead during the altercation. While at the hospital, he continued to be uncooperative and combative. A search of his vehicle yielded drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance.

The suspect was subsequently released from the hospital and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on charges of driving under the influence, assault and battery on a law enforcement officer, possession of controlled substances, obstructing justice, refusal, possession of controlled paraphernalia, disorderly conduct on hospital grounds, and a traffic violation.

Shortly thereafter, deputies responded to reports of a suspicious male subject in the area of Pilot Knob Loop. The subject was seen jumping from porch to porch. Upon arrival, deputies located the suspect in front of an apartment on Malvern Hill Court. The suspect initially falsely identified himself to law enforcement and then attempted to flee the scene on foot. He pushed Deputy Mangan and then was quickly apprehended by 1st Sergeant Purcell.

The suspect was identified as Sammy Davis, 34, of Richmond. Deputies determined he was one of the subjects involved in the larceny incident at Wawa. They also learned he was wanted out of Chesterfield County and Prince William County for failure to appear. Drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance belonging to Davis were also located.

Davis was taken into custody and subsequently incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond on his outstanding warrants. He also received additional charges of providing false identification to law enforcement, identity theft to avoid arrest, assault on a law enforcement officer, obstructing justice, petit larceny, possession of a controlled substance, and concealment of merchandise.

Sgt. Flick also located a third suspect in the larceny incident. The suspect was found in front of a residence on Pilot Knob Loop holding the bag of stolen jolly ranchers. He was identified as Juan Page, 49, of Dumfries. The suspect was taken into custody and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on a secured bond on charges of larceny third of subsequent offense.
