CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Police are hoping surveillance photos can help catch an armed robber wanted for two incidents at convenience stores early Wednesday morning.
Chesterfield police released photos Friday from the Circle K at 2117 Willis Road showing a suspect walking into the store around 6 a.m. The man pulled out a handgun and demanded cash from the clerk.
The suspect, who ran off with an undisclosed amount of cash, headed near the Waffle House before turning right on Burge Avenue and getting into a waiting vehicle.
Earlier that morning, police think the same suspect walked into the Circle K at 2320 W. Hundred Road around 5:30 a.m. He also displayed a handgun and demanded money, but ran off before receiving any cash.
No one was injured in either incident.
The suspect was described as a black male, about 24-32 years old with a dark complexion. He was about 6 feet tall and weighed about 190 pounds; he had an athletic or muscular build. He had an injury to his lip. He was wearing a white shirt and black pants.
The suspect’s vehicle was described as a cream-colored car, possibly a Dodge Magnum.
CBS 6 senior reporter Wayne Covil also reported that a man armed with a rifle or shotgun robbed the Circle K on Temple Avenue in Colonial Heights around 3 a.m.
