Woman Charged For Dousing Acquaintance in Gasoline

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC)– A Woodbridge woman was arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning for allegedly spraying gasoline in an acquaintance’s face at a Shell station.

Prince William County Police officers responded to the service station, at 13313 Occoquan Road in Woodbridge, around 4:20 a.m. The victim, a 34-year-old woman, told police she was pumping gas when she got in a verbal altercation with 39-year-old Lashawn Dernette Johnson.

The victim said Johnson grabbed the pump from her and sprayed her face with fuel, which caused eye injuries that required a visit to a local hospital.

Johnson fled the area on foot but was located by police shortly afterwards. She was charged with malicious wounding. Her court date and bond information have not yet been released.
