HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A Henrico teenager was arrested this week for the November 9 robbery of a food delivery driver.

Rhaquez Clayton, 18, was charged with malicious wounding and robbery.

"A local restaurant along the 8900 block of W. Broad Street was delivering food to the 9300 block of Greenford Drive," a Henrico Police spokesperson said of the November crime. "The delivery driver stopped nearby, and the suspect reached through the passenger window and began assaulting the driver. The victim accelerated away from the scene but crashed into a mailbox and fence along Huron Avenue."

The driver was treated for his injuries at the hospital.
