Police seek suspect in unlawful entry, theft in West End

Henrico Police are investigating an incident that occurred at a western Henrico apartment Jan. 20 and seeking the public's assistance in identifying a suspect.

Officers responded to the 9500 block of Shepton Circle, near the intersection of Hungary Road and Springfield Road, after receiving a break-in call for service from the female adult victim. The victim reported that she heard a knock at the door, responded to answer and was met by the suspect, who asked if her boyfriend was home. She answered no, and the suspect forced his way into the apartment.

The victim noticed a handgun in the pocket of the suspect and ran from the apartment to notify the management office. When she returned to her apartment, she noticed that her purse was missing and immediately contacted her bank to cancel her credit cards.

Later, she was informed that her debit card had been used at gas station near Three Chopt Road and Parham Road, and officers responded and retrieved the surveillance footage pictured.

The suspect (above, facing camera) is described as a black male possibly in his mid to late 20s with braided hair. He was last seen driving what appears to be a two-door Ford Explorer that is dark colored with gold running boards.

Henrico County Police is seeking the public's assistance in locating the subject responsible for these crimes. Anyone with information regarding these offenses is asked to contact Henrico Police at 804-501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
