Va. teen stabbed with machete

A 16-year-old who was stabbed Sunday told Manassas police he was attacked by three young Hispanic men who covered their faces with bandanas and wielded a machete, authorities said.

Manassas Police said the teenager reported that he was walking alone near the 9600 block of Aspen Place about 11:40 on Sunday when he was approached by the three men.

He said he ran as the suspects tried to cut him, but they gave chase. The teenager suffered non life-threatening wounds to the back, side and upper body.

Manassas Police Lt. Brian Larkin said investigators are looking into the possibility the attack is gang-related.

Manassas City Crime Solvers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest. The confidential tip line is 703-330-0330.
