Prince William Police arrested Chantilly man, Joseph Micah Rainey, 21, Feb. 14, for allegedly committing a strong-arm robbery in Manassas, last week.

Prince William officers responded to investigate a robbery that occurred at the 8200 block of Old Centreville Road in Manassas (20111) around 3 a.m., Feb. 4, arriving at 5:50 a.m.

The victim, an 18-year-old Fairfax woman, reported to police that she and Rainey, an acquaintance of hers, were involved in a verbal altercation, which escalated.
