The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program wants to help catch a robbery suspect.
On Friday, April 5, at about 5:15 p.m., a woman was loading her child into her car in the parking lot of Kroger, 7000 Tim Price Way. As she was doing so she felt a push from behind and her purse was ripped from her shoulder. She turned and saw a young black male running west toward the nearby Firestone.
The suspect was a black male, 18-29 years old and approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall. He had a muscular build and wore a grey sweatshirt with a red polo-style shirt underneath. The suspect’s sweatshirt and the victim’s purse, less the victim’s credit cards, were later recovered. Surveillance cameras at a Family Dollar in Richmond captured images of a black male using the victim’s stolen credit card, and you can see the images of the suspect at www.crimesolvers.net .
