CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston police are looking for a suspect in two recent armed robberies in downtown Charleston. Police say the suspect is also wanted in a financial card fraud case.

According to police reports, on July 31 Michael Knox took two women's purses at knife point in separate robberies. In the fist incident, police say Knox rode a bicycle behind a group of women walking near Meeting and Spring Streets and tried to take one of their purses. While he was attempting to get the purse, Knox pulled a knife on the victim. He then made off with the bag.

In the second incident, Knox again rode up behind a woman, this time on Cannon Street and allegedly tried to take her purse, but was unsuccessful. Knox pulled a knife and the victim gave him the bag.

In addition to the armed robberies the Charleston Police Department says Knox is wanted for three counts of financial transaction card fraud. 

Knox is 5'11" tall and weighs about 145 pounds. His last know address is in Awendaw. Anyone having information about the cases or Knox's whereabouts is asked to call investigator Hull at 720-2399.
