Aggravated Malicious Wounding – On January 4 at 3:41PM, officers responded to the area of Rixlew Ln and Ashton Ave in Manassas (20109) to investigate a shooting. When officers arrived on scene, they located two victims, a 17-year-old male juvenile of Manassas and a 16-year-old male juvenile of Woodbridge, by a wooded area near the above location.
One of the victims sustained a gunshot wound to the upper body while the other victim sustained a minor, non-gunshot related injury to his head. Both victims were transported to area hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
The investigation revealed that the victims were walking through a wooded path in the above area when they were approached by two men, later identified as Jonathan Leonel AVILES and a 17-year-old male juvenile of Manassas. During the encounter, the AVILES suspect brandished a handgun and struck both victims. At one point, the 16-year-old victim was shot in the upper body.
After the incident, the suspects fled in the vehicle occupied by two other men, identified as Steven Joseph ROLDAN and Diego MARTINEZ. Detectives from the Gang Unit were able to determine that the suspects were connected to the criminal street gang “South Side”. The vehicle involved in the shooting was located by officers in the 7900 block of Community Dr later that evening where the suspects were also detained without incident.
