HENRICO COUNTY, Va.  -- Henrico County Police were called to the West Broad Commons Shopping Center early Easter Sunday after a man ran up to another man in the parking lot, punched him, then stole his wallet.

"If it happened around midnight or one o'clock it makes me wonder what was going on," said Al Whitmer, who frequents the shopping center.

The victim wasn't able to give a description of the suspect. The crime is one that surprised people who come to the shopping center.

"I've never seen anything bad here," said Whitmer

Although it's quiet, Whitmer said there are several dark spots in the parking lot.

"It would be really easy for someone to do it," he said.

Whitmer said this incident has encouraged him to be more careful while walking around in the parking lot at night. If you have any information on the incident, call Crime Stoppers or the Henrico County Police.
