RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Police detectives need the public’s help to identify several male teens who are suspects in an armed robbery last week.

Police say around 8 p.m. on Monday, August 24, that several suspects followed a man out of a restaurant at W. 12th Street and Semmes Avenue, brandished a firearm and robbed the victim of a sandwich the victim had just purchased. The suspects then fled on foot.

There were no injuries in the incident.

Police sent video and images are from the business just moments before the robbery.
