(RICHMOND, Va.) -- Richmond Police detectives are asking for the public's help to identify the individual who is suspected of robbing a man at gunpoint.

At approximately 7:35 p.m. on Friday, November 20, security video from a residence in the 13000 block of N 23rd Street shows the victim running up to the porch with the unknown suspect chasing him. The victim ran into a random location and yelled out a random name, in hopes of deterring the suspect from robbing him. The suspect, armed with a handgun, continued to chase after the victim and robbed him of an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect does have a goatee. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored Nike hoodie, a surgical mask, blue stonewashed cut-up jeans and brown Timberland boots.
