Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND (WRIC)—The Richmond Police Department is searching for a group of male juveniles that attacked and robbed a man on Tuesday night near the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University.

At 6:58 p.m. on Dec. 3, the victim was riding his bicycle eastbound on the 1600 block of Idlewood Avenue when he was approached by five or six black male suspects. Without saying a word, they began punching the victim before stealing an iPod from his backpack. They were last seen heading toward the intersection of Temple and Idlewood avenues.

The suspects, who all wore dark clothing, are still on the run. Police say they could pose a threat to others in the area.
