RICHMOND, Va. - Police released an 12-second video clip of a man wanted for a Midlothian Turnpike robbery. The robbery happened about 8:30 Saturday morning, July 5, at the Midlothian Motor Company.

The man is accused of robbing and attempting to abduct a mechanic. After the robber took money from the register, police said he tried to take the mechanic to an ATM to get even more cash.

When the mechanic got into a car to go to the ATM, he pretended he could not start the car. With the robber distracted, the mechanic took the robber's gun and started to hit him. The robber bit the mechanic's arm and ran off.

Richmond Police described the suspect as a black male, between 5’9 and 5’11 feet tall and weighing approximately 160 pounds.

"He was last seen wearing a dark baseball cap, black shorts and a red shirt with white lettering," police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective William Cutshall at (804) 646-1068 or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.

      Ken u said if obama had a son. What did that meant? Let me tell you this.. If your mother didn’t have you as a son how better the world would be. If she would read some of your stupid and heartless comments she probably would curse the day she gave birth to you.

        ” What did that meant?” One would like to think that you are not so oblivious to the news that you do not recall Barry Soertoro inject himself (and eric holder) into the Treyvon scenario with the statement “If i had a son, he’d look like Treyvon before any evidence was presented. But hey, some folks are so blinded they don’t recall his confession of being a marxist/socialist/communist to Joe the plumber. Anyone remember the beer summit over “stupidly”.

        manaishi (clayton bigsby) will make any ignorant/stupid remark in order to garner attention to himself. Pathetic loser. Ken Mitchel may be just another alias for this POS sociopath.

        Looks like Troll (with multi screen names) lost track of who he is stalking. Good to know he found more wifi at Panera.

    Chesterfield should consider renaming its portion of Midlo so it’s not associated with this type of trash.

    Bit the mechanics arm you say? The next time he robs someone I’d be afraid he would flick em with a towel. The brothers in his hood will make him pay. That’s embarrassing!
