Washington Post editors

Two Vienna men who allegedly assaulted a cab driver late last month were arrested in North Carolina and are now being brought back to Vienna for prosecution, police said.

The incident happened on Jan. 31 at 5:10 a.m. in the 500 block of Ridge Road SW after the driver had picked up three people in Vienna. During the trip, the three people argued with the driver and hit him with a weapon, police said.

After an investigation, Ronald P. Carrigan, 23, of Chain Bridge Road and John D. Salathe, 23, of Glengyle Drive were arrested and charged with attempted robbery and malicious wounding, police said. They were located in Greensboro and arrested on warrants issued by Vienna police. They are now being extradited back to Vienna.
