Richmond Police detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the individual in the attached photos who is a person of interest in multiple armed commercial robberies that occurred in the past few months along East Brookland Park Boulevard.

At approximately 6:40 p.m. on Tuesday, November 29, officers responded to the 1400 block of East Brookland Park Boulevard for the report of an armed robbery. It was determined that a black male, who was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, brandished a firearm and demanded money from the employee. The suspect took money from the cash register and fled on foot.

On January 8 at 7:05 p.m., officers were again called to the 1400 block of East Brookland Park Boulevard to investigate a report of an armed robbery. A male wearing a grey sweatshirt and grey sweatpants brandished a firearm and robbed the business of money before fleeing on foot. The suspect is believed to be the same in both robberies.

Anyone with information about the identity of this individual is asked to contact Property Crimes Detective Sergeant M. Stella at (804) 646-4656 or Detective D.
