Brambleton Security Guard Charged with Assaulting Juveniles

A 20-year-old security guard working in the Brambleton Plaza area faces eight criminal charges following a Saturday afternoon altercation with a group of juveniles.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, three juveniles were exiting the elevator on the upper level of the parking garage when they were approached by the guard. The man said they were trespassing and then physically detained and assaulted the juveniles. He took a cell phone from one of them.

The guard was charged with three felony counts of kidnapping, three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of property damage.

    I’m glad no one was seriously hurt, but one young man may well have derailed his life with multiple felony charges.

    I wonder what liability the plaza and security company will face with the inevitable lawsuits? Security firms need to do a better job of selecting recruits and training them. The first rule for a security guard is to understand that you are not a law enforcement officer.

    The security guard’s actions are very strange. Why would he accuse young people of trespassing when they’re on public property? Then, he purportedly detained the youths & assaulted them (and seized a cellular phone). If he’s guilty of these transgressions, he must be held accountable. On a brighter note, Happy Thrift Shop Day Loudoun!
