ROBBERY SUSPECT: Our detectives are working to identify and locate one suspect following a robbery on Sept. 23, 2022, on VCU’s Monroe Park Campus.
On Sept. 23 at 3:21 p.m., a victim reported a robbery in the 700 block of West Main Street. The victim was approached by an unknown male who attempted to take their bag, which was on their shoulder.
