Two Men Convicted Of Felony Assault

George Washington Memorial Parkway

National Park News

Two men have pled guilty to felony assault in federal court for an attack on two people that took place near the Mount Vernon Trail in March. Edwin Alexander Chavez Abrego and Antonio Benitez, both in their 20s, pled guilty to felony assault resulting in serious bodily injury and will be sentenced in October. They each face up to 10 years in jail, but the plea agreements that they reached with the government provide for a sentence of 63 months. On March 19th, Abrego pushed and knocked one victim into the open flame of a campfire, causing burns to his face and body that required hospitalization for two days. During the same incident, Benitez punched and kicked a second person in the face, causing a blood clot in his brain that required hospitalization. The incident occurred on a section of the trail near Reagan National Airport and Four Mile Run. The case was investigated by Park Police detectives Kevin Fornshill and Michelle Ludwick in conjunction with detectives from the Alexandria City and Arlington County Police Departments.
