Police: Gasoline Sprayed in Woman's Eyes at Woodbridge Shell Gas Station

The victim was pumping gas when the incident occurred, according to Prince William County Police.

Police arrested a woman Saturday after another Woodbridge woman reported that gasoline had been sprayed in her eyes, Prince William County police spokesperson Jonathan Perok said. 

Lashawn Dernette Johnson, 39, of Woodbridge, was charged with malicious wounding by substance. Her court date and bond information is unavailable.

Police initially responded to a report of an assault at 4:20 a.m. Saturday to the Shell Gas Station at 13313 Occoquan Road in Woodbridge.

"The victim, a 34-year-old woman of Woodbridge, reported to police that she was pumping gas at the location when she became involved in a verbal altercation with the accused, a known acquaintance," Perok said. "During the encounter, the accused grabbed the gas pump from the victim and sprayed gasoline in the victim’s face. The victim sustained severe injuries to her eyes and was transported to an area hospital for treatment."

Johnson reportedly fled the area on foot, but was located a short time later and arrested without further incident, according to Perok.
