CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Chesterfield Police need your help tracking down a suspect accused of armed robbery. The man is wanted in connection to a violent robbery at Appliance Connection off Hull Street Road.

Police say it all happened around 4PM on a Friday afternoon. The manager at Appliance Connection stumbled into the neighboring Gold Exchange with a black eye.

"Oh man," said Gold Exchange owner Chris Blake. "it was swollen. It looked like he got punched by Roy Jones or something."

Blake says the suspect actually came inside his store and asked for candy. Blake says the suspect seemed nervous and left quickly. Moments later Blake's colleague stumbled in asking for help.

The victim was too upset to go on camera, but he says the suspect held a gun to his head, choked him, and demanded cash. Blake admits the whole thing is spooky. He hopes someone recognizes the surveillance images.

"I was like man," said Blake. "I should have paid attention more."

This all happened on Friday, September 27th. Contact Crime Solvers at 748-0660 if you have any information.
