Alexandria Police Department Peacefully Resolves Barricade Incident On Kenmore Avenue

For Immediate Release: June 25, 2021
 
The Alexandria Police Department peacefully resolved a barricade incident in the 4700 block of Kenmore Avenue.

At approximately 9:30 a.m. on June 24, 2021, Alexandria Police officers attempted to serve a warrant for failure to appear in court from Arlington County on 34-year-old Hamzeh Abdelmajid Abushariah in an apartment in the 4700 block of Kenmore Avenue.  Abushariah did not comply, leading to the barricade incident.

Officers were able to enter the apartment around 3:00 p.m. and took Abushariah into custody without incident.  Residents were then allowed back in the building.

Questions about the Arlington County warrant for Hamzeh Abdelmajid Abushariah should be directed to Captain Juan Gelabert at the Arlington County Sheriff’s Office.
