Ashburn Man Charged with Assaulting Deputies, EMS After Costco Shoplifting Call

An Ashburn man has been arrested after allegedly assaulting two deputies—and attempted to disarm one—after the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Costco store in Sterling for a shoplifting call. He was stopped with the help of Costco employees and bystanders.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the Costco at around 1 p.m. Tuesday for a reported larceny in progress. When they confronted the suspect, they say he began to resist, and one deputed tased him, with no effect.

He fled toward the front of the store where he was confronted by store employees. Several bystanders helped the deputies stop him from leaving.

He continued to resist, and deputies say at one point tackled a deputy, grabbed the deputy’s taser and threw it, and tried to grab the deputy’s holstered firearm. Other deputies responded and he was tased again before he was placed under arrest, according to the report.

As he was being evaluated by Emergency Medical Services, he allegedly assaulted a Loudoun County Rescue medic. He was taken to a local hospital to be checked out,before being transported to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center, where he was held without bond.

Sady Ashkar, 32, of Ashburn, was served on multiple warrants for assault on law enforcement and rescue personnel, attempting to disarm a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, and larceny/shoplifting-related charges.  

A deputy who was assaulted was transported to a local area hospital for treatment of his minor injuries. He was treated and released.

    Over the past two years, the Left has tried to normalize assaulting LEOs and resisting arrest.

    Kudos to the civilians who came to the aid of the Deputy.
    This is very serious stuff. If you decide you want to assist in a situation like this, be very, VERY sure that the LEO is aware of your intentions. Communication is critical. Especially upon the arrival of additional units.

    Now we surely get to watch Buta play nice nice with this violent criminal, instead of seeking punishment for what could have been a tragedy.

    My goodness. The young suspect was tased twice. Yet it sounds like he was still out of control. He allegedly menaced several individuals, including law-enforcement personnel. Where is all this strange behavior coming from? My condolences go out to the alleged victims.

      Drugs. That’s where all the strange behaviour is coming from.

    Great to see that Costco employees and customers wouldn’t put up with his crap. Way to Go, Sterling!
