Richmond Police detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the individuals who are suspects in a robbery that occurred on early this week at Chippenham Hospital.
Shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 23, police were called to Chippenham Hospital at 7101 Jahnke Rd. for a report of a robbery. The victim stated as she was walking to her vehicle inside of the hospital parking garage near the emergency room, she was approached from behind by an unknown male.

As the victim attempted to enter her vehicle, the suspect tapped her on the back. She then turned around and began to scream. She and the suspect then began to struggle for possession of the keys as he repeatedly told her, “Give me your keys,” and “Don’t scream!” He eventually gained possession of the keys and pushed the victim to the ground where she sustained a non-life threatening injury.
