Suspect Sought in Z Express Robbery

May 24, 2016

Richmond Police detectives need the public’s help to identify the suspect, who robbed a south side convenience store last night and is a person of interest in several robberies in the metro Richmond area.
At approximately 10:46 p.m. on May 23, officers responded to a reported commercial robbery at the Z Express located at 5111 Midlothian Turnpike. The victim stated the suspect entered the store, displayed a handgun and demanded money from the cash register. The suspect then left the store and was last seen walking behind the business on Old Midlothian Turnpike.

The suspect is described as a black male in his late 30s, 5’9” tall, weighing approximately 170 pounds. He wore a black hoodie, black pants, white gloves, sunglasses and a black cloth over his face at the time of the incident. He also has a distinctive walk, which was described as a “duck walk.”

Detectives believe that since January this individual may have been involved in numerous robberies on the city’s south side, in the Washington Park neighborhood, and in the Azalea area of Henrico County.
