Help police catch man who robbed a convenience store

The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs the community’s help to identify and catch a young male who robbed the 7-Eleven at 9700 Jefferson Davis Highway on Sunday, April 18.

At approximately 3:30 a.m., a young black male walked into the store while covering his face with his sweatshirt sleeve. He immediately approached the clerk, pointed a dark semi-automatic handgun and demanded money from the register. After taking the money, the suspect left on foot toward Perlock Road.

The suspect is a black male with a dark complexion, 18-25 years old, 6 feet tall with an average build. He was wearing an oversized gray sweatshirt with black pull strings, a black baseball cap and baggy, black Rocawear jeans.
