Officers responded to the Food Lion located at 8118 Blair Road in Mint Hill last Thursday in reference to an armed robbery that occurred in the parking lot. The victim reported that a white vehicle, driven by a young white male, pulled up to her car while she was loading her groceries in her vehicle and a black male exited the passenger side and approached the victim. The black male demanded that the victim give up her purse and wielded a knife. The victim turned over her purse and the suspects left the scene.

Police obtained surveillance video of this black male suspect using the victim’s credit cards at the Wal-Mart in Monroe at approximately 11:40pm on the same date. Suspect appears to be around 6’1” tall, muscular build, light skinned black male with a balding or shaved head.

Anyone with information about this individual is asked to contact Det. Garmon at the Mint Hill Police Department 704-545-1085. Callers can remain anonymous.
