Manassas rape suspect also robbed barbershop, police say

A juvenile accused of raping a woman behind her boyfriend’s townhome last week also robbed a Manassas barbershop in early March, police say.

Police say the juvenile, 17, robbed the Maplewood Barbershop at gunpoint on March 1. It’s alleged he tried to rob the same barbershop hours before he raped a woman behind the townhomes on Vermont Place on March 28.

The victim, 31, told police she was forced behind the townhomes at gunpoint and raped. The suspect took her cell phone and money before running off.

The juvenile was arrested and charged Tuesday. He’s being held at the Juvenile Detention Center.
