Police are investigating two robberies near the Southbridge area Saturday.

On Saturday, June 1, at 7:05 p.m., officers responded to the 3100 block of Chesapeake Drive to investigate a robbery, Prince William County police spokeswoman Renee Carr said in a news release.

The victim, a 64-year-old man, told police that he was leaving an apartment complex near Chesapeake Drive when “he was approached by two known male juveniles and one unknown male juvenile,” Carr said in the news release.

The juveniles demanded the man’s money and, when he did not comply, one of the suspects displayed a handgun, police said.

The suspects stole the victim’s wallet before fleeing the scene, police said.

The victim returned home and contacted police.

During the investigation, a second robbery involving suspects with the same descriptions was reported, police said in the news release.

Officers responded to the Southbridge Recreational Center, at 17325 River Ridge Blvd., to investigate the second incident, police said.

A 13-year-old boy reported that he was walking in that area when he was approached by three juveniles who “threatened him while demanding his money,” Carr said in a news release.

The suspects took an undisclosed amount of money before running from the area, police said.

No injuries were reported in either incident. The investigation continues.
