A Delta man has been charged after allegedly punching a teen twice during a robbery.

According to Delta police, six teens were walking near 1st Avenue and English Bluff Road in Tsawwassen on June 2 around 1 a.m. when a man approached them.

The man demanded the group hand over wallets, money and other valuables or he would shoot them. When a teen protested that he didn’t have a wallet on him, the man allegedly punched the teen twice in the face.

The group then fled and called 911 to report the robbery.

During a followup investigation, a nearby resident called Delta police to report their security camera had captured footage of a suspicious man in the area the same evening as the robbery.

Insp. Guy Leeson said the footage “proved instrumental” in tracking down a suspect. He encouraged other residents to register their security cameras with the Community Watch Program, as the footage captured could be valuable in a wide range of police investigations.

Property crime investigators were then able to locate a suspect and searched his property before arresting him.

Katlin James Richardson, a 32-year-old Delta man, faces three counts of robbery, one count of uttering threats and one count of assault. Richardson is in custody and will appear in court on June 14.
