Prince William Crime Solvers to cease operations Jan. 1

Prince William County Crime Solvers will cease operations on Jan. 1 after more than 35 years, according to a letter released by the board this week.

Crime Solvers is a nonprofit partner helping local police draw attention to unsolved cases and wanted fugitives.

Tip lines by phone and online will not be accessible beginning Jan. 1 and the social media accounts will be turned off, according to the letter dated Tuesday, Dec. 5.

The letter cited financial struggles and concerns about sustainability as the reasons for ending the local program.

“Crime prevention and deterrence is everyone’s responsibility,” the board wrote. “We hope the residents and business owners of Prince William County will remain committed to a safe community and work with the police department to keep the lines of communication open.”

In the last five years, Crime Solvers received 780 tips leading to 49 awards totalling nearly $15,000

3 attacked in Woodbridge home invasion after road rage incident, Prince William County police say

– Three people were assaulted in a Virginia home Friday night following a road rage incident in Prince William County, according to police.

Officials say three suspects, two men and a woman, were involved in a road rage incident with a 19-year-old man and then followed him to his house on Gascony Place in Woodbridge.

According to police, at around 8 p.m. the suspects forced their way inside the home and assaulted two people, a 43-year-old man and a 49-year-old woman.

Police say the suspects were armed with a handgun as well as an “edged object.”

The female victim was initially armed with a bat, which she was using in self-defense, but police say it was taken by one of the suspects who then used it on the male victim.

Police say he was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspects fled the home and the victims called police.
