A man suspected of as many as 15 morning muggings throughout the Richmond and Ingleside districts pleaded not guilty Wednesday after police tracked him down Sunday.
Malcolm Telfor was formerly charged with four robberies that all occurred Sunday morning, but police say he may be responsible for a dozen more muggings that occurred during a time when The City was experiencing a spike in violent robberies.
Telfor, who’s in his 20s, allegedly used a pellet gun when holding up people, who were mostly women, and sped away from the robberies in a gold sport utility vehicle, police said.
Richmond Police Station Capt. Richard Corriea said the robber was able to elude police because between 6 and 7 a.m., officers are usually changing over from the night shift to morning shift.
But on Sunday morning, an undercover police team was able to track down where one of the stolen check cards was being used.
