Summerville Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying an armed robbery suspect involved in an attempted robbery at both Target in Azalea Square and the Shoe Department in North Main Market at approximately 2:50 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.
The suspect, who was described as a black male, presented a handgun to a manager at Target and wanted access to the safe. The suspect left the store before he could complete the robbery.
About 40 minutes later the same suspect went to the Shoe Department and pointed a black handgun at an employee and demanded money.
The suspect fled with an undetermined amount of the money and got into a small gold two-door Pontiac Sunfire with tinted windows and front driver’s side damage.
Anyone who can identify the suspect or who has any information is asked to contact the Summerville police Department at 851-4100 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
