Police are investigating a Wednesday evening home invasion robbery in the Westgate Apartments outside Manassas.

At 6:42 p.m., officers were called to the 10100 block of Portsmouth Road, where the victims reported four men forced their way into the apartment when a resident opened the door after hearing a knock, said Prince William County police spokesman Adam Beard.

During the robbery, the suspects brandished firearms and then assaulted an 18-year-old resident, taking a cell phone, shoes and money before leaving.

The incident does not appear random, Beard said. The investigation continues.

Suspect descriptions include:

  • A white male, approximately 20 years of age, 6’2",185lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes Last seen wearing a black sweatshirt
  • A black male, approximately 20-25 years of age, 6’2”, 190lbs with black dreadlocks Last seen wearing all black clothing
  • A black male, approximately 20-25 years of age, 6’00”, and 160lbs with black curly hair Last seen wearing a black jacket
  • A black male, approximately 6’2”, and 300lbs Last seen wearing a ski mask
