2200 block Caroline St, 9/25 11:00 pm. A 26-year-old Stafford resident reported that he had just gotten a meal from Hardee’s on Princess Anne Street and was parked in a lot on Caroline Street eating his food when two male subjects approached his vehicle and demanded money. Both suspects were reportedly armed with handguns and threatened to shoot the victim.

The suspects were described as white males wearing black hoodies and they had masks covering most of their faces. The investigation is ongoing.
Brocks, 503 Sophia St, 9/27 2:40 am. A 27-year-old Stafford resident reported that he was outside his vehicle in the back parking lot when a male subject approached him from behind and assaulted him by grabbing his head and striking it repeatedly against the side of the car. During the assault, the suspect yelled at the victim to give up his wallet. The victim fought back, and during the ensuing struggle he was cut by a knife that the suspect had in his hand. The suspect ended up dropping the knife and running from the scene without getting any of the victim’s property.
A bloodhound from the Virginia State Police responded to the crime scene and followed a scent trail that ran from the parking lot to the wooded area adjacent to the river under the railroad bridge.
