Two men, one from Nokesville and one from Warrenton, reported to Prince William County Police that they were attacked on Aug. 24 by three Nokesville men in the 7500 block of Linton Hall Road in Gainesville.

According to police spokesman Jonathan Perok, “During the encounter, the group used a blunt object to repeatedly strike both victims. The men fled the area in a vehicle which was later found unoccupied.”

Witnesses at the scene identified two of the suspects as Tyler Robert Van Hook, 24, and Ryan Marshall Van Hook, 21, both of 13619 Fleetwood Drive in Nokesville.

Detectives located both men at the residence, where they were arrested without incident. Police continue to investigate the identity of the third suspect.

“Both victims were transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries,” Perok said.

Police charged both suspects with two counts of malicious wounding and two counts of assault by mob. Court date and bond information were unavailable.
