The woman was carjacked about 1:08 p.m. outside the Arby’s at 8900 Quioccasin Road in Henrico. The gunman stole the woman’s Toyota Camry. Less than 20 minutes later, a person who matched the general description of the carjacker robbed the bank at 7013 Three Chopt Road near the Henrico-Richmond line.

The stolen Camry was found abandoned eight blocks from the bank near the intersection of Three Chopt Road and Ripley Avenue in Richmond.

Stolen Car

K9 units and a police plane are being used to help find the suspect. Police described the suspect as a black male in his late teens or early 20s. He was wearing a grey shirt.

During the bank robbery, police said the suspect wore a medical mask to conceal his face.

Earlier Tuesday, a gunman wearing a medical mask robbed a gas station in Chesterfield.

There have been no reports of any injuries.

The St. Christopher’s School and St. Catherine’s School, which are located near the bank, were locked down as a precaution.

This is a developing story.

    Latosha…please tell us who “THEY” are. While you’re at it, please explain what you mean by “PUT IN ON THE AFRICAN AMERICANS”. And finally, what is “WHITE HATTING”? Judging by your comment, I bet you went to RPS but dropped out.

    Might be a doctor in a white hat…or at least a doctor in a white medical mask?:

    Please put a link to where you found that 70% of crime is committed by blacks….white people shoot up places is the truth! What are white kids taught who have underage unmarried parents? Ever seen 16 and pregnant on MTV?

      You obviously need a link because you do not actually watch WTVR or read the headlines. But there is always the possibility that you are a raging stereotypical democrat that cannot do basic 5th grade math. Which is it?

        Why David using words of more than 1 syllable – your mom will be so proud of you. Now if you could only manage to make an articulate comment on the topic rather than yet another insult towards someone commenting like a rational adult would… I know, I won’t hold my breath on that one.

      • mmmm

        I watch WTVR and I am smart enough to know that they report what they want to mold the public into. The media ia govt ran, they pick and choose how and what they report to shape the public’s opinion. And you obviously are a sterotypical republican, dumb like Palin, McCain, and Romney.

        “I watch WTVR and I am smart enough”. No hummmmer, you are not. You democrat mother raised a drooling tard. That’s what democrats do. I hope you enjoy your
        “special” charm as much as we do.

    THEY ALWAYS PUT IN ON THE AFRICAN AMERICANS NO SUPRISE SO MUCH WHITE HATTING OUT THERE”

    So it was not a black male who carjacked the lady and used her car to go to the shopping center to rob a bank? Why would the woman lie? She’d want to positively ID the person who stole her car, right? So why pin it on a black male if it was not a black male?

    BTW the words you are looking for is “surprise” and “hating”. And yes I quote you because your posts have a habit of disappearing. Come on Latosha stop hating on everyone else and open your eyes to the fact that the capacity to commit crimes is not limited to one’s race.

    Yeah I know I keep on feeding the troll – I fell that everyone deserves a warm meal, even trolls.

  • yale

    Comments….#x!? Main reason why stuff is getting robbed the shear fact that Frankenstein frame of mind needs to be shredded a business capital with less opportunity to succeed because a label has to be placed on every situation all men of a certain age lacking skill and a chance will do whatever it takes within their reason to make it does it matter what color we know some people have been accused and convicted in the past “blacks” and the only thing black was the mask 2014 race and drugs are country peoples demons not politicians media and policemen yea right if everything wasn’t black and white their would be less of these robberies and dealings every issue isn’t related to another so stop Jim Bob lol

  • Chad

    I wish WTVR would just stop allowing comments if the same Racist person is going to comment on every article that involves black people committing crimes or white people committing crimes.That person (LATOSHA) to be exact has some mental problems and is stuck in her own white “HATTING” bubble…

  • nolicenseinva

    So, isnt it terrible a nice Henrico grandmother was car jacked. Its very scary, I hope they find the person/persons responsible for this. This is my neighborhood , And alot of different races live here. Whats wrong with you people?

      • manalishi

        it’s an obvious question. It’s a simple question. Nobody has to like the question or answer. it’s time to clean up the s**t or watch it grow. We all need to make a choice.
