Police arrest man in connection with robbery, assault at diamond store

TaQuan M. Hobbs
A 22-year-old Henrico man is in police custody, charged with robbery and malicious wounding in connection with an incident at the Diamond Expressions store at Virginia Center Commons Sept. 29.

Henrico Police arrested TaQuan M. Hobbs of 1000 Borden Road in Henrico shortly after the incident yesterday, which occurred at about 1 p.m. Police said that a black male walked into the store and asked to see diamond rings, but after honoring the request, an employee became suspicious and requested to see the suspect's identification before showing any other rings.

The suspect produced a driver's license as well as a credit card in order to purchase several items, but the credit card was declined, so the suspect offered $400 to purchase one ring.

As the employee moved to the register to complete the sell, police said, he placed the other items into his pocket for safekeeping. At that point, according to police, the suspect jumped the counter and began assaulting the victim about the head and face with the credit card reader. The suspect removed the rings from the victim's pocket, took the $400 and fled the store.

Two witnesses who observed the assault followed the suspect to the parking lot and recorded identifying information.

A short time later, the described vehicle was seen driving in the area of the 2100 block of Bremo Road and was stopped in the area of Libbie Avenue and Broad Street. The driver, Hobbs, was taken into custody without incident.

A gift that should stop giving

‘Jingle All the Way 2’ is expectedly flawed
Was anyone asking for an extra-large helping of Larry the Cable Guy this Christmas? If so, you can thank Santa Claus for Jingle All the Way 2.

If not, you can be like the rest of us and curse Santa for his folly in creating such a film. Santa, we neither wanted nor needed this.

A follow-up to the much-derided 1996 Christmas film Jingle All the Way, Jingle All the Way 2 isn’t so much a sequel as it is an odd kind of remake, offering a few original twists on the original’s dad-vs-dad holiday showdown, but also copying large chunks of the original without alteration. > Read more.
