The below information comes from the Manassas City Police department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned it does not indicate a conviction.

Manassas City Police Officers are looking for a man they say participated in robbing a pizza delivery man at gunpoint over the weekend. 

Police said they responded to the 8500 block of Braxted Lane for the report of a robbery Saturday at 12:15 a.m. The victim, a pizza delivery man, told officers  he was delivering a pizza when he was confronted by three black males.

The victim said that one male pointed a gun at him and demanded money while another struck him in the back of the head with an unknown object. The victim escaped by throwing the food at the suspects and running away.

Further investigation revealed that David Alan Westbrook Jr, of 8463 Braxted Lane, along with a 16-year-old juvenile and another male, only known as “Memphis,” were responsible for the robbery.

Westbrook was arrested and charged with attempted robbery and use of a firearm in commission of a felony. He was held at the Prince William County Adult Detention Center with no bond. His court date was set for July 3.

The juvenile is currently being held at the Prince William Juvenile Detention Center on attempted robbery, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and malicious wounding charges. His court date will be determined at a later date.

The Manassas City Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating the third subject, only known as “Memphis.”

This is an ongoing investigation.

There's no way in hell that if I were delivering late at night that I wouldn't be "carrying".

When it comes to attacks on pizza delivery workers, there is always a common denominator.

Carrying does not mean anything. Everyone that owns a gun has this superman mentality. How many people that own guns wind up being the victim on the other side of that same gun? Instead of always bringing up guns, why can't we citizens discuss what needs to be done about increase in violence? The guns are not the answers and people are the questions.

Crime is actually down in recent years. And that's because more and more law abiding citizens are arming themselves and criminals know they have to be more careful since their odds are dropping. Guns are good.

Where are you getting your statistics ? We might never know the impact crime is having on communities because of false reporting and fudged statistics reported by police themselves for obvious reasons.
