Prince William Police arrested a 17-year-old male from Manassas this week and charged him with malicious wounding. The juvenile suspect is accused of stabbing a family member multiple times after an altercation.

On March 30 at 12:06 a.m., Prince William officers responded to the 10200 block of Winchester Court in Manassas to investigate a stabbing of a 46-year-old Manassas man outside of his home.

“During the encounter, the victim was stabbed multiple times before the suspect fled on foot,” Prince William Police spokesperson Officer Jonathan Perok said.

The victim was transported to a local hospital to treat serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Meanwhile police K-9s were used to search for the suspect.

According to Public Information Officer Ericca Figueroa, detectives from the Violent Crimes Bureau identified the suspect involved in the stabbing incident and arrested him on April 4.

“Through the investigation, detectives learned that the suspect and the victim were family members involved in a verbal altercation which escalated to the stabbing,” Figueroa said.

The juvenile is being held at the Juvenile Detention Center. Due to the age of the suspect, police have withheld his name.
