Officers dispatched a K-9 to search for two suspects after a Dale City man was robbed at gunpoint in his own backyard Tuesday evening, Prince William County Police said.
The 19-year-old victim told police that he and two friends were in the backyard of the home on the 14200 block of Cloverdale Road, around 9:10 p.m., when the two men approached.
"The men entered the backyard and began to speak to them. At one point, one of the men displayed a handgun and demanded property from the victim and his friends," police spokesman Officer Jonathan Perok said in a press release. "The armed suspect then ordered the victim inside the home where he took additional property."
Both suspects fled on foot. No one was injured.
Police used a K-9 to search for the suspects, but did not find them.
The first suspect is described as a black male, 18-22 years old, about 5'8", with a thin build. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and armed with the handgun.
The second suspect is described as a black male, 18-22 years old, 5'10", with a medium build and dark complexion. He was wearing a blue shirt with two large white letters or numbers on the chest.
