Officers arrested a Leesburg man early Friday morning after he allegedly stabbed his younger brother and fled the scene, according to a report from the Leesburg Police Department.

Officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Evans Ridge Terrance around 1:30 a.m. Dec. 6 in response to a reported assault. At the scene, they found a Leesburg man, 22, suffering from multiple stab wounds to the upper torso.

The suspect was identified as the man’s brother, Sahara Clay, 34, of Leesburg, according to the report. Clay then fled in another family member’s vehicle.

Officers responding to the scene saw a vehicle that matched the description driving at high speed away from the community along Fort Evans Road.

A chase ensued as the vehicle kept moving, turning on Rivercreek Parkway and the Russell Branch Parkway, according to the report. The vehicle then stopped on Cochran Mill Road and Clay was arrested without further incident.

A knife recovered from the vehicle is believed to be the knife used in the attack.

Officers charged Clay with aggravated malicious wounding, felony eluding, reckless driving, and driving while license is revoked. He is being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.

The victim was taken to Inova Louodun Hospital’s Cornwall campus, treated and released, according to the report.
