WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston Police Department is on the lookout for two people in connection to an attempted armed robbery at a West Ashley Walmart.

On March 12 at 10:30 p.m., police responded to the Walmart on 3951 West Ashley Circle for an attempted armed robbery.

The victim said the incident started when she had finished loading her vehicle with groceries, and was waiting for her sister to put the cart up and get into the driver's seat.

According to police, the victim was sitting in the passenger seat when a man ran up to her door, pointed a gun at her and demanded that she open the door.

When the victim's sister opened the driver's side door and saw what was happening, police say the suspect got spooked and ran away and got into an older model Chevy Silverado.

Investigators say the truck, which had an unknown driver waiting inside, then drove away on Floyd Drive around 10:30 p.m.

CPD officials describe the first suspect as a black male, 6'2", skinny build and appeared to be in his late teen or early twenties.

The suspects' vehicle is described as a bluish/gray, mid-to-late 2000s, crew cab 4-door Chevy Silverado.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111 or Consolidated Dispatch at 743-7200 and ask for the on-call CPD detective.
