Jaden Longchamp and Joseph Youhana
Two Sterling men are in custody after a drug-related robbery in Sterling early Christmas morning.
Joseph B. Youhana, 19, and Jaden A. Longchamp, 18, both of Sterling, have been charged with robbery, abduction and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, according to the LCSO.
Deputies responded to the 20900 block of Sandstone Square around 4:30 a.m. Dec. 25, where a male reported he went to a residence to purchase narcotics. He was then assaulted by several men at the residence, and his money was taken.
The victim was able to contact a family member, and their girlfriend who came to the house, and they were also assaulted, according to LCSO. During the attacks, a firearm was brandished by one of the suspects.
All three victims were able to flee the home and contact authorities.
The suspects went back into the residence, and the LCSO established a perimeter around the home and attempted to contact with the suspects inside.
A search warrant was obtained for the residence, and LCSO deputies entered the home and took the suspects into custody without further incident.
Both Youhana and Longchamp are being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond.
The case remains under investigation.
