From RPD:

Richmond Police detectives are asking the public for surveillance images of a robbery suspect.

Today, at approximately 12:50 a.m., a female was driving a vehicle westbound in the 3200 block of East Broad Street when she stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of 32nd and East Broad streets.

An unknown male with a gun approached her vehicle, tapped the passenger side window and motioned for the woman to unlock the door. He got in the vehicle and demanded to be driven a few blocks away to Chimborazo Park. There he stole cash, a mobile phone and credit cards before fleeing on foot through the park towards the dog park area.

There were no injuries.

Detectives are asking anyone who has surveillance equipment in the area to check the video files to see if they captured the incident or suspect.

The suspect is described as a black male, mid 40’s, 6 feet 3 inches tall, with a dark complexion. He was wearing a wool cap, denim jacket, tan or light-colored shirt and dark trousers.

Detectives ask anyone with an image of the suspect or any information about this incident to call First Precinct Detective Brian Taylor at (804) 646-0689 or call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip.
