Roanoke Police Seek Two Black Males in One Stop Market Robbery

Police City of Roanoke May 21, 2013

The Roanoke Police Department is seeking two suspects in a commercial robbery that occurred on May 19, 2013. Officers responded at 7:40 p.m. to the One Stop Market located in the 4300 block of Williamson Road. Upon arrival they located an employee who stated that two suspects entered the business, and one brandished a firearm and demanded money. Both suspects obtained an undisclosed amount of money and fled. No one was hurt and no arrests have been made.

Both suspects are described as black males, both between five feet seven inches and five feet eight inches in height with thin builds. The suspect who brandished the firearm was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a zipper in the front, black jeans, black sneakers, and a gray werewolf Halloween mask. The second suspect was wearing dark blue jeans; a red, white, blue, and yellow striped long sleeve shirt with a white collar; and a brown werewolf Halloween mask.

Anyone with information regarding this or other crimes should call the Roanoke Police Department at (540) 853-5959 or Crime Line at (540) 344-8500. Crime Line may offer a monetary reward for any information leading to an arrest in a crime.

Crime by Race in Virginia

In 2014 I pulled the incidents below from the Roanoke police for January to the first week of June. I was surprised by the number of blacks - Roanoke is about 26% black.

In the ones where race was identified as 14 black, 4 white, 4 unknown. When I used the 2012 State Police crime report they revealed there's no criminal category for Hispanics so their high crime rates inflate the white rate because they are counted as white - so white here is white/Hispanic and really everyone else. Asians by far have the LOWEST crime rates.

Blacks are about 20% of the Virginia population, Hispanics about 8%.

Blacks per capita commit 10.3 times the murders of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 3.45 times the rapes of whites. There were 231 more white victims of rape than white offenders but 184 more black offenders than black victims. National stats show white on black sexual assaults are virtually zero. Do the math.

Blacks per capita commit 15 times the robberies of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 4.6 times the assaults of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 3.6 times the burglaries of whites in Virginia.

Conclusions: while the above figures are rough but they correspond closely with arrests and subjects in Roanoke. Likely the 4 unknowns are also black.
