Joshua Lamar Pendleton, 25, who received multiple charges stemming from the failed Aug. 15 burglary of a Braemar residence, assaulted a correctional officer and attempted to escape custody of the Adult Detention Center.

“The investigation revealed that as another inmate was being released, the accused attempted to escape the ADC through the same door,” said police spokesman Officer Jonathan Perok. “As an ADC Officer attempted to intervene, the accused struck the officer in the shoulder.”

Pendleton was charged with the Aug. 17 assault and battery on a correctional officer and attempted escape with force, Perok said.

Pendleton was previously charged for the attempted Braemar burglary and other offenses, including alluding police, and running a red light, which resulted in a collision with another car in the intersection of Nokesville Road and Piper Lane.  The accused fled the scene of the accident, where police apprehended him in a nearby parking lot.

Pendleton is being held without bond. No court date has been set.
