An armed robbery of a Woodbridge Walgreens store on Dec. 24, is one more in a list of masked robberies to have occurred in Prince William County, this week.

It could likely be linked to the Dec. 26 Manassas Denny's armed robbery in which two were shot and one man, Yusuf Ozgur, was killed.

Other similar incidents include a robbery at Bowl America on Balls Ford Road, Dec. 21, and Comfort Inn Suites, Dec. 23. Both of those incidents occurred in the Manassas area after midnight.

At Bowl America, one suspect brandished a gun while the other a baton, just as in Denny's armed robbery.
