Police Stand Off With Man - August 19

Media Release:

On 08-18-07 at approximately 9:21 P.M. Waynesboro Police were dispatched to a residence in the 400 block of Florence Ave,

for two stabbing victims, with a perpetrator still on the scene. Upon arrival police found an approximately 40 year old Stuarts Draft Male with multiple serious stab wounds and subsequently encountered an approximately 40 year old female resident of the house as she fled the residence that had also been cut, but not seriously. Police evacuated the victims for treatment and transport by rescue personnel and established a secure perimeter at the scene. Information obtained by officers on the scene indicated that the perpetrator was still in the residence as was an unknown age handicapped occupant. The suspect called 911 and threatened to shoot the police and then himself, but ultimately offered no resistance as officers removed the handicapped female through the front door of the residence. This was accomplished while the suspect was in another part of the residence. Officers maintained a secure perimeter and Negotiations were begun with the suspect. The suspect continued to allege that he was armed and thus the Waynesboro Police Department SWAT was notified to respond. In addition, we were assisted by Augusta County SWAT as well as other deputies who assisted on the perimeter and in the immediate area. Telephonic Negotiations continued with the suspect for over three hours and included two instances of face to face Negotiations which ultimately lead to his surrender at approximately 12:37 A.M.

The suspect is identified as Vincent M Brown 38 years of age of Waynesboro. He is currently being held without bond on one count of Malicious Wounding. Additional Charges are pending completion of the ongoing investigation.
