Richmond police detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a gas station robbery suspect who was captured on surveillance video.

The incident occurred on Dec. 26 at the Chevron Gas Station at ‪3411 Blume Drive‬, police said.

“The suspect simulated pointing a firearm and demanded money” before reaching over the counter and taking money from the register, police said.

The suspect fled and footage from video surveillance cameras captured him entering the passenger side of an awaiting white 4 door unknown model sedan.

“We are hoping viewers can help us identify the suspect based on not only his description but distinctive red hat,” police said.

The suspect is described as a black man in his mid 30s, about 5’7” to 5’9” with facial hair and wearing the red hat, black jacket, blue jeans and black shoes.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Detective Castillo at ‪510-620-6673‬. You can remain anonymous.
