October 11, 2016
Richmond Police detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the woman in the attached photo who is a suspect in a robbery that occurred early this morning.

Shortly before 1 a.m., police responded to the Fas Mart at 2107 Semmes Ave. for a report of a commercial robbery. The suspect approached the store clerk with her hand, covered in a scarf, demanding money. When the clerk realized the suspect did not have a weapon, she pushed the suspect’s hand away and called police. The suspect then took several packs of cigarettes and fled Eastbound on foot toward Cowardin Avenue.

The suspect is described as a black female with short dark hair, approximately 40-50 years old, 5’6” tall, and weighing 145-150 pounds.  At the time of the incident, she wore a black scarf, black jacket, blue jeans, and tan colored boots.

Anyone with information about this incident or the individual pictured is asked to call Third Precinct Detective Jack Larry at (804) 646-1647 or contact Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or at www.7801000.com.
