Prince William County Police have charged a Manassas man with malicious wounding, hit and run resulting in injury, DUI (third offense within 10 years), driving on a revoked license and refusal to submit to a breath test.
Police public information officer Jonathan Perok said that police responded to the 7800 block of Gregory Court on Aug. 4 as 12:32 a.m. for an assault.
