A 26-year-old man was found dead of apparent stab wounds near a dumpster in Manassas on Sunday morning, police said.

Patty Prince, a city spokeswoman, said police would not release the victim’s name until his family had been notified.

Prince said police do not know how long he had been dead before he was found. Police responded to a call from a neighbor about the body, which was near a dumpster on the 8900 block of Nicol Lane, but not inside the dumpster, at about 10:30 a.m.

The city of about 40,000 people has not reported any homicides in 2014 to date.
