Tenant and son attempt to detain suspect in Manassas around 4 a.m.

Stabbing Investigation –
On Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2021 at 4:09AM, officers with the Prince William County Police Department responded to the Acadia Run Apartments located in the 11800 block of Laurestine Way in Manassas (20109) to investigate an initial report of a vehicle larceny in-progress.

While responding to the call, officers were advised that two individuals were attempting to detain the suspect. Additional information was received indicating that the suspect stabbed one of the men in the back before fleeing on foot. After arriving on scene, officers located the victim, a 56-year-old man, and rendered aid until rescue personnel arrived. The victim was transported to an area hospital where his injury was determined to be non-life threatening. The other man was not injured.

A police K-9 and helicopter assistance from Fairfax County police searched the area for the suspect who was not located. The investigation revealed that the caller was on her balcony when she observed an unknown man appearing to check vehicle door handles in the parking lot. The woman informed her husband, later identified as the victim, and adult son of what she observed.

The two men then proceeded to the parking lot where they observed the suspect open a vehicle door and get inside. The men confronted the suspect and removed him from the vehicle where a struggle ensued. During the struggle, the victim felt a sharp pain to his back before falling to the ground as the suspect broke free and fled on foot.

The caller’s son chased the suspect to the area of Sudley Manor Dr where he lost sight of him. Upon returning to the scene, the son observed the victim’s injury and rendered aid until officers arrived.

During the struggle, the suspect’s black Northface jacket was removed. An earlier call was received in the same area at approximately 2:42AM of a suspicious person driving a dark green Toyota Camry who appeared to be driving through the parking lot and looking into vehicles with a flashlight. Officers had checked the area at that time and did not locate the suspect, suspect vehicle, or indications of a crime. No description could be given of the suspect in that incident other than a man wearing dark-colored clothing. The investigation continues.

Suspect Description:
White male, between 25 & 30 years of age with a thin build, long blonde hair, and a scraggly beard
Last seen wearing no shirt (a black Northface jacket was removed during the incident) and all dark-colored clothing including a beanie cap, mask, and pants
