Wawa, 2390 Plank Rd, 1:15 a.m. Tuesday: Three Spotsylvania residents, ages 18-21, reported they were walking out of the Wawa when they were assaulted by a group made up of approximately five males and three females.
The three victims were all forced to the ground and punched and kicked until the assailants broke up and left in various vehicles. One of the victims had his cell phone and Raiders ball cap stolen during the fight. The victims were able to provide descriptions of three of the suspects:
- one white male in his early 20s with a shaved head and wearing a white T-shirt and jeans;
- one white male in his early 20s, over 6 feet tall with black curly hair and a goatee;
- and a white female in her early 20s with long curly brown hair and wearing a Rastafarian style hat.
