Maintenance crew held up at gunpoint while on the job

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) – A four person maintenance crew got quite a scare early Sunday morning when a man tried to rob them while on the job.

Police say around 2:40 a.m. workers were doing some repairs at the Bowl America on Williamsburg road.

When one of the workers went outside to retrieve something from their vehicle a man approached with a gun, demanding money.

When the worker showed the suspect an empty wallet police say the suspect then put the gun to the worker's head and forced them back inside the business.

Once inside police say the suspect then demanded money from the rest of the workers.

However police say none of the crew had anything of worth on them and the suspect decided to flee the scene empty-handed.

No injuries were reported.

Police are now reviewing surveillance video to help identify the suspect.
