HAMPTON, Va. (WVEC) -- Police are asking for the public's help identifying six men, one of which they say attempted to rob a convenience store before another man carjacked a customer, Sunday.
According to officials, the attempted robbery occurred just before 10:30 p.m. at Roy's Quick Service II in the 2900 block of Shell Rd.
When police arrived on scene, a preliminary investigation revealed that the six suspects arrived at the business in three separate SUVs, the vehicles are described as one white Suburban, a dark-colored Suburban, and a silver Land Rover.
The suspects exited their vehicles, while one of them entered the business. That suspect displayed a firearm before demanding money from the store clerk. The suspect left the business before taking anything from the clerk.
A second suspect stayed outside of the business, and approached a customer of the convenience store in the parking lot. The second suspect then demanded the customer's vehicle. The victim, a 36-year-old man, gave the second suspect his vehicle, and all six men left the scene in the SUVs they arrived in and the stolen vehicle.
