Virginia Beach police search for accused truck stop stabber


VIRGINIA BEACH — Police are searching for a man who goes by the nickname “ASAP” due to his alleged involvement in a stabbing at a Virginia Beach truck stop, according to court documents.

On Nov. 10, a man was stabbed multiple times outside of his camper, which was parked at Big Charlie’s Truck Stop, according to documents filed in Virginia Beach Circuit Court.

The victim had never met “ASAP” when he came to the 5792 Northampton Blvd. truck stop with a woman the victim did know. The woman said she’d met “ASAP” for the first time that day and they’d driven around Virginia Beach together that afternoon, court documents state.

The woman and the victim got into an argument outside of the camper, and “ASAP” allegedly got out of the Ford Focus the woman was driving and stabbed the man multiple times. The pair fled the truck stop in the car and drove in the direction of the woman’s Gygax Road apartment in Norfolk; however, “ASAP” jumped out of the car on Military Highway and fled on the foot, according to court documents.

The woman parked the car in the 400 block of Fort Worth Avenue in Norfolk and had a friend take her back to the truck stop where she spoke to police. Although she couldn’t tell them much about “ASAP,” she did direct an officer to the car so they could seize it, court documents state.

Police seized and searched the car for fingerprints and DNA to discover who “ASAP” is. They took a beverage straw, hair, fibers, latent fingerprints and a swab of the door handle.

Anyone with information on the crime should call the Virginia Beach Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
