Richmond Police detectives need the public’s help to identify the man in surveillance video who is wanted in connection to a robbery and attempted robbery of two businesses on Forest Hill Avenue this weekend.

At approximately 8:45 p.m. Saturday, a man walked into the Baskin-Robbins store at 6940 Forest Hill Ave. and demanded money from the clerk. He left without receiving anything.

Approximately 20 minutes later, the same man walked into the Martin’s at 3000 Stony Point Road and demanded money from a clerk. He left with an undisclosed amount of money.
