Joint Operation Arrest

This morning the Richmond Police and Henrico Police departments were involved in a joint operation that resulted in an arrest.

At approximately 8:17 p.m. last night, a man broke into the residence of his estranged wife in the 2600 block of Houston Street in Richmond. He brandished a gun and made contact with his young adult son prior to leaving the residence. He then left the area in his vehicle.

Richmond detectives contacted Henrico officers who located the man's vehicle at his residence in the 3700 block of Bedford Street in Henrico.

Henrico officers attempted to serve the Richmond warrant. Upon making contact, the suspect would not surrender. Officers then discovered the suspect’s young child was inside the residence.

Henrico SWAT officers attempted to peacefully resolve the situation for several hours before entering the home at approximately 4 a.m. this morning.

The child was unharmed and the suspect was arrested without incident.

Emanuel V. Key, 41, of the 3700 block of Bedford Street in Henrico has been charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony and violation of a protective order. His photo is below.

Anyone with further information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both methods are anonymous.
