CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Two suspects are in custody after an armed robbery early Tuesday morning, and Chesterfield Police are still looking for others.

The robbery happened around 1:30 a.m. at a home in the 1100 block of South Wedgemont Drive, near Lucks Lane and Courthouse Road.

Police say several suspects at the door to the home woke the victim up. The victim spoke to NBC12, but asked to remain anonymous for safety reasons. He said the people outside banged on the door and rang the doorbell, identifying themselves as police officers.

"When I opened the door, there was guns pointed at me," said the victim. "They told me to open the door, so of course guns pointed at me, I thought to shut the door but they threatened, so I opened the door and they came in and attacked me."

The victim said he was tased several times and beaten, while being dragged from room to room.

"Kicking punching, being tased several times, gun flying off!" said the victim. "At the time I thought they had gotten my life but God had protected."

The victim said the suspects beat him and demanded to know where the money was. He said he only has credit cards, but told them to take whatever they wanted. He feared for his life.

Police say the suspects then stole several items and the victim's vehicle. The victim suffered non life-threatening, but serious injuries from the attack. He had to go to the ER for a broken nose, bruises all over his body, and stitches.

Police pulled over the stolen vehicle near Hull Street and Courthouse Road. Police say the driver, 30-year-old Deondrik Sessions, tried to run but was caught, and the passenger, 20-year-old Corey T. Hancock Jr., was arrested at the traffic stop.

Sessions and Hancock are charged with robbery, grand larceny, conspiracy to commit a felony and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Police are still looking for the other suspects in the robbery. Anyone with information should contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
