A 17-year-old has been charged in a rape, armed robbery and attempted armed robbery in separate incidents last month.

Prince William County police said the teen on Thursday used a handgun to force a woman into a secluded area on Vermont Place in Manassas where he then raped her. He took the victim's cell phone and cash and fled the area.

Detectives investigating the attack, connected the suspect to an attempted armed robbery of the Maplewood Barbershop that same day and the robbery of the same business on March 1.

The 17-year-old is being held as a juvenile and charged with multiple offenses.
