3 gunman attempt robbery in The Fan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Three gun-toting robbers are on the run after attacking several people in Richmond's Fan District overnight Wednesday.

Ian Ciulla was just sitting on the front porch of his apartment building on South Brunswick Street when the attack happened. Even though he made it out unharmed for him it's still surprising.

"I told my girlfriend, Danielle get inside" said Ciulla. "And I ran and grabbed my computer and I dove inside. The guy was right behind me and chased me. I turned and shut the door, his hand was almost in the door as I was shutting it."

The suspects got away with nothing but just around the corner robbed another group of unsuspecting residents walking down main street.

"They had been at Mulligan's Sport Grill and had left the restaurant and were walking in the parking lot getting in their vehicles when they were approached by three suspects," said Richmond Police Lieutenant Edward Capriglione. "Two of them were armed. The robbery took place in the parking lot."

Two of Ian's roomates were hit in the head with the suspect's gun and had to be treated at the hospital. Now they will always be on the lookout to prevent something like this from turning deadly.

"As much as you can keep your doors lock," said Ciulla. "Anything you can do. You never really know when something like this is going to happen so you kind of got to stay on guard."

If you have any information about either of these two incidents you are asked to call Richmond Police at 646-5100.
