A Warrenton man this week allegedly tried to kill two men he believed sexually assaulted a woman he knows over the weekend.

Prince William County police charged Alec Michael Shrauder, 21, with two counts of attempted murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony.

Officers received a tip after 10 p.m. Monday that Mr. Shrauder, armed with a gun, might be driving to a Haymarket home in the 15600 block of Crestview Lane, where he planned to confront the men, police said.

After a three-hour manhunt that included a helicopter and a tracking dog, police arrested him around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. Officers also found a gun in the area, police said.

Mr. Shrauder, of Chittenden Drive near Warrenton, remains in jail without bond.

The alleged sexual assault remains under investigation, according to police.
