Prince William County police are seeking information about three robberies that have targeted necklaces.
The incidents all took place last week in the Manassas area, police said.
On Wednesday at about 4:30 p.m., a 56-year-old man was walking in the area of Hiram Court and Notre Dame Street when he was approached by a man who assaulted him and forcibly took a necklace from around his neck. The suspect, who fled on foot, was described as a black male, 18 to 20 years old, 6 feet tall, and 150 pounds, with a thin build and short black hair, police said.
On Thursday shortly before 6 p.m., a 44-year-old woman was walking to her home when she was approached by a man who went to grab a necklace from her neck and knocked her to the ground. The necklace broke and the suspect fled without taking it, according to police. The attacker was described as a black male, 18 to 20 years old, and about 6 feet tall, with a thin build.
On Saturday at about 4:30 p.m., a 70-year-old woman was walking to her home in the 10100 block of Portsmouth Road when a suspect came up to her and grabbed a necklace from around her neck, which caused it to break, police said. The robber took the necklace and ran to a vehicle. He was described as a black male, 15 to 16 years old and 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a thin build.
