A pair of robberies occurred in the same Richmond in a span of about 45 minutes overnight, a police lieutenant said. At 11:45 p.m., one victim was robbed at gunpoint in the 100 block of West MacDonald Avenue, Richmond police Lt. Shawn Pickett said. The suspect, who was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants, took cash and other small valuables from the victim, Pickett said. The suspect was described as a black male standing 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build. At 12:33 a.m., another victim told police he was attacked from behind in the 100 block of Curry Street, five blocks from where the first robbery occurred, Pickett said. The suspects in that case, armed with shovels and glass bottles, struck the man on the head and robbed him of his shoes and cash. Because that victim did not see his attackers, no description of those suspects was available.
