Five alleged Bloods gang members charged in Manassas City

Five people accused of being members of the Bloods gang have been charged with a total of 94 counts including rape and grand larceny, Manassas City police said Monday.

In a news release, the Manassas police department said a three-month investigation into crimes in the Manassas area led them to execute search warrants at four addresses in Manassas and Manassas Park on Friday.

After searching the four homes, they arrested Manassas residents Adam Avery Fink, 22, and Michael Marshall, 19; Manassas Park resident Jose Orellana Escobar, 27; and two unidentified juvenile suspects, a 15-year-old from Manassas and a 17-year-old from Woodbridge.

Fink and the 17-year-old suspect were each charged with two counts of rape, and the 17-year-old was also charged with three counts of carnal knowledge of a minor. All five were charged with burglary, grand larceny, gang participation and firearms-related violations, among other counts. All but Escobar were charged with malicious wounding by mob.

A police spokesman did not immediately respond Monday to an inquiry about the nature of the crimes.

The police news release said that all five suspects were held without bond.
