WINCHESTER — A Roanoke man suspected of breaking into a home and beating the woman who lived there, and a motorcyclist accused of leading police on an approximately 35-mile chase that reached speeds of 120 mph, were among the people indicted on Thursday by a Frederick County grand jury.

The home invasion occurred at a home in the 100 block of Williamson Place just after midnight on Feb. 7. Malik Ivan Sims is accused of forcing his way into the home and striking the woman several times in the face and stomach. The woman told police the assailant said her brother owed him money.

Lt. Keith Covert, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said last week that DNA from a bandanna the woman pulled off the man’s face during the assault was a match for Sims. Sims, 26, of the 2200 block of Roanoke Avenue SW, was accused of abduction, breaking and entering, robbery, use of a firearm in a robbery and use of a firearm in an abduction. Sims remained a fugitive on Sunday afternoon.

The June 3 chase began around 3:50 a.m. on Va. 37, according to a criminal complaint written by Deputy Don O. Garcia of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office. He said the motorcyclist was traveling at 90 mph in a 65-mph zone when he tried to stop him.

The rider reportedly accelerated when Garcia activated his lights and siren, then he drove north to the U.S. 11 interchange before turning around. The rider allegedly reached speeds of 120 mph before exiting on U.S. 50, running at least two red lights. Garcia and a state trooper chased the motorcyclist into Hampshire County, W.Va., where he escaped.

Garcia was able to get the rider’s license plate and said he called the suspected driver, Christopher Adam Cavey. “[Cavey] later turned himself in and confessed to seeing blue lights on Va. 37 and not stopping,” Garcia wrote.

Cavey, 40, of the 200 block of Low Rider Drive in Old Fields, W.Va., was charged with eluding, reckless driving, reckless driving 20 or more miles above the speed limit and driving without a motorcycle license.
