Thief becomes victim in attempted robbery

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A lesson for thieves - you could become the victim!

A crook tried to steal someone's mp3 player in the 2000 block of Willis Road around noon Tuesday.

The thief pulled out a knife and told a guy to hand over the music player.

But the man fought back, hitting the suspect in the face and kicking him in the groin before running away.

Chesterfield police still want to find the would be thief; call them if you know anything about it.
