Man Robbed of $400 at Gunpoint in Alexandria’s West End

The Alexandria Police Department is investigating a robbery at gunpoint that occurred last night in the 5400 block of Richenbacher Avenue in the city’s West End.

The victim, a male in his 30s, was waiting in a parking lot at around 8:30 p.m. to buy an electronics item from an individual he met online. When the seller arrived, he pointed a handgun at the victim and took $400 in cash, according to Alexandria Police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine.

The victim was not injured.

The suspect, who fled the scene on foot, is described as a six-foot-tall black male with a slim build and wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.

The incident occurred in a residential neighborhood within walking distance of N. Van Dorn Street.
