Washington, DC – A man who escaped custody August 12 from the Virginia Department of Corrections while at a medical facility in Henrico County, Virginia, is back in custody today.
Naseem Roulack, 21, was arrested at approximately 9 a.m. at a hotel in the 6700 block of Commerce Street in Springfield, Virginia, by the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force and Fairfax County Police Department.
When arresting officers knocked on his hotel door, Roulack allegedly attempted to flee by jumping from a third-floor window with an assault rifle, injuring his arm and dropping the gun. Following a short foot chase, he was taken into custody and given medical attention. He was transported to a local hospital for further treatment.
Roulack was serving a 13-year sentence for charges of aggravated malicious wounding, grand larceny and hit-and-run when he escaped custody, but is also facing kidnapping, armed robbery, armed carjacking, first-degree assault and vehicle theft charges for a Sept. 1 incident in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
The U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force had been looking for him since Aug. 12.
The mission of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Force (CARFTF) is to locate and apprehend the most violent and dangerous fugitives throughout the Washington metropolitan area. With offices in Washington, Virginia, and Maryland, the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Force has developed, and will continue to develop, relationships with numerous federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to help ensure the safety of the citizens of our nation's capital and surrounding areas.
