Armed Robbery [Previously Released] – On June 20 at 1:51 a.m., officers responded to the 7100 block of Gateway Court in Manassas (20109) to investigate a robbery.

The victim, a 21-year-old woman, reported to police that she and an acquaintance were parked in his vehicle on Gary Drive when a black Honda Accord parked next to them.

Two female acquaintances and an unknown man exited the Accord and approached the victim. One of the women and the man then brandished firearms and demanded the victim’s property.

At one point during the encounter, the victim was struck by one of the women. The victim was eventually able to separate from the individuals and run to the above area where a bystander notified the police.

The victim reported minor injuries. A purse was reported missing. The incident does not appear to be random. The investigation continues.
