UPDATE: Fairfax County prosecutors dropped the malicious wounding charge against Robin McGreer during a preliminary hearing in General District Court in 2017, according to court documents provided by McGreer.

A Fairfax County Circuit Court judge expunged the charge from McGreer’s record in 2018, according to records provided by McGreer.

Original story: A McLean man is facing hate crime charges after police said he bit another man’s face in November after an altercation in which he used anti-Muslim slurs.

Robin McGreer, 35, approached a 31-year-old man in a Tysons Corner Center parking lot Nov. 27, started a conversation and then threatened him using anti-Muslim slurs, Fairfax County police said.

An altercation ensued and McGreer bit the man’s face, leaving him with a “significant face wound,” police said. McGreer left the scene before police arrived.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Fairfax police said it is the department’s policy not to release details about victims’ backgrounds, so they would not describe the victim’s race or religion.

McGreer was arrested Monday and charged with bias-related malicious bodily injury.
