CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – Police are seeking two suspects involved in two separate incidents — an attempted robbery and a motor vehicle theft — at two different locations on Monday, July 22. The attempted robbery occurred in a parking lot in the 7500 block of Midlothian Turnpike at about 3:40 p.m., and the motor vehicle theft occurred minutes later in the 100 block of Turner Road.
Police said a man was sitting in his vehicle at the Wawa at 7500 Midlothian Turnpike when two unknown suspects approached him demanding money. The victim was able to flee from the scene in his car and contact police. The suspects were not able to obtain anything from the victim.

The victim had left his car running while he went inside the store and his vehicle was missing when he came out. The vehicle is described as a blue, 2004 Toyota Matrix bearing Virginia tag XCK-1990.
