Pr. William police seek man who impersonated officer, robbed store

Prince William County police are looking for a man who they say robbed a Manassas check-cashing business after identifying himself as a police officer and threatening to Taser the clerk.

The robbery occurred Saturday around 8:30 a.m. in the 10500 block of Lomond Dr.

Police say the clerk was opening the store when the suspect approached him and demanded to see some documents.

When the clerk declined, the suspect shot the Taser and missed and then threatened the clerk with a gun and demanded money.

Police said the suspect was wearing a “badge” around his neck, armed with a taser, handgun, handcuffs and gloves and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money in a gray van driven by another man.
