In late October, Prince William County Commonwealth Attorney Amy Ashworth dropped the charges against five individuals arrested during the May 30-31 riots and attacks on law enforcement on Sudley Road and Liberia Avenue.
Of the eight individuals arrested by the County Police Department over the course of the two days, five had their charges dropped.
Four police officers were seriously injured due to the attacks on May 30, including one who suffered a major head injury for which he had to be taken to the hospital.
Attendees of the riot were made to disperse from Sudley Road after blocking the road just up the street from Prince William and Kaiser Permanente Hospital. According to the police report, some of the protesters proceeded to jump on top of stopped cars along the busy road and threw dangerous projectiles at officers and civilians stopped by the protest alike.
An unlawful assembly was declared shortly after 8 p.m. In addition to the attacks on law enforcement and civilians, numerous businesses, vehicles, and police cars were vandalized along Sudley Road.
One of those arrested attempted to ram their vehicle through a police perimeter.
The following day, two more were arrested for looting the Walmart on Liberia Avenue connected with a local church protest. The evening ended with Manassas police being forced out of the area by protest attendees.
