The manager at the Grand Villa apartment complex in north Richmond is the latest victim of gun violence in the little city of Richmond.
According to police spokesman Master Sergeant Lowell Neinast, on December 3, just before the office of the Grand Villa Apartments, located at 1001 Pultar Road, was scheduled to close at 6 pm, a man wearing a black stocking over his head came in the office demanding money.
Evidently the manager did not respond quickly enough to satisfy the robber so he pulled out a handgun and pointed it at her, then again demanded money. Not allowing her time to respond, the gunman reached across and took a money bag from the manager’s desk, said Neinast. Reportedly the gunman left with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspect was described as an African American male, approximately 6 ‘, 170 pounds, with a dark complexion and a goatee.
He appeared to be in his late twenties or early thirties said Neinast. At the time of the robbery the suspect was wearing a royal blue t-shirt, and possibly blue jeans. He is believed to have fled on foot from the scene. The apartment manager was not physically injured in the robbery.
