WASHINGTON, D.C. (WAVY) — U.S. Marshals arrested a man Monday in Washington D.C. who was wanted for allegedly robbing an Old Dominion University student in June.

Authorities say 25-year-old Lyndon Adraine Scott, also known as “Fatz,” robbed an ODU student at gunpoint around 12:30 p.m. June 17 in the 1000 block of West 39th Street. ODU police investigated the incident and on August 5, took out warrants against Scott for robbery, abduction, malicious wounding, use of firearm in commission of a felony and possession of firearm by a convicted felon.

U.S. Marshals in Norfolk were asked to take over the investigation and determined Scott was in the D.C. area.

Late Monday morning, members of the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force took Scott into custody at an apartment complex, located at 901 New Jersey Avenue Northwest in D.C.

The U.S. Marshals-led Fugitive Task Force is made up of officers from the U.S. Marshals, the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office, the Newport News Police Department, the Portsmouth Police Department and the Norfolk Police Department.
