Earlier today, Horace White, 53, pled guilty to one count of Burglary While Armed, one count of Malicious Wounding, two counts of Robbery, two counts of Abduction and one count of Carjacking in relation to an incident that occurred in the 400 block of Jackson Place on January 9, 2015. White was sentenced to a total of 40 years in prison with 15 years of that sentence suspended, meaning that he will serve 25 years. Following his release from prison, White will be on supervised probation for five years. The plea was part of a global plea agreement reached in conjunction with the Arlington and Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Offices regarding other burglaries committed in the Commonwealth.  Around 4 p.m. on January 9, police responded to a residence for the report of a stabbing. White had attempting to burglarize the residence, but was interrupted when the two victims, both 84, returned home. They were attacked by White and one victim was stabbed. White bound that victim and forced the other to drive him to the Braddock Street Metro Station before she was released. “The successful outcome of this case could not have happened without a collaboration with the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office and the Metro Transit Police Department. We cannot overlook the exemplary efforts by members of both departments working together to bring a suspect to justice. Additionally, I am extremely proud of the hard work and effort put forth by the men and women of the Police Department, both at the scene and during the investigation. This exemplifies our commitment to the safety of our community,” said Chief Earl L. Cook.
