Metro has arrested two teenagers and charged them with aggravated assault after they allegedly attacked a man on the platform at Gallery Place on Friday night.

Now, the victim and his family are seeking the good Samaritan who they say came to his aid during the attack.

The assault occurred about 5:45 p.m. Friday as John Rowley, 62, was exiting a Red Line train on the upper-level of Gallery Place, on his way to meet a friend. Rowley said he was walking toward  the end of the crowded platform when a group of teenagers approached.

Harrisonburg Police Department shares what to do during a home invasion

HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) — A Washington state homeowner was arrested on murder charges on Saturday after police announced he fatally shot a man found taking a shower in his home.

The Mason County Sheriff’s office said he was arrested on second-degree murder charges. There are still more details that have yet to be released, but police say the homeowner had enough time to call for help before firing the shots.

White man, 62, who shot dead black teen during argument outside Dollar General store is indicted for murder

A West Virginia man accused of fatally shooting a black teenager after the two bumped into each other and exchanged words has been indicted on a murder charge.

A Kanawha County grand jury handed down the indictment on Thursday against 62-year-old William Ronald Pulliam, who is white, in the fatal shooting of 15-year-old James Means, according to Charleston Gazette-Mail.

Police say the teen had a BB gun in his waistband but nothing in his hands when he was shot in the chest and in the back on November 21. 

Police have said Pulliam showed no remorse and told investigators: ‘That’s another piece of trash off the street.’

Pulliam has denied he said this. He said that he shot in self-defense after he felt threatened.
