RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect who robbed and abducted a man in the city’s Southside.

According to police, the victim was walking to a business when he was approached by a man who showed a gun and demanded money. The victim responded that he did not have any cash, so the suspect led him to two ATMS to take out money. The victim complied and the suspect then fled.
