Help catch men who robbed man at gunpoint

The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs the community’s help to identify and find three men who robbed a male victim in the 7000 block of Wentworth Street on Friday, Oct. 15, at about 12:40 a.m.

The suspects approached the victim, demanded money at gunpoint and then fled on foot toward Swineford Road.  The suspects managed to rob the victim of cash, credit cards and a cell phone.  Also during the robbery, the victim’s backpack, which contained a silver-plated semi-automatic handgun, was taken.  The witness described the suspects as black males in their late teens to early 20s, and wearing dark clothing.
