Charleston Police detectives say a reported attempted strong armed robbery in downtown Charleston last month did not happen. 

CPD officials say they have canceled a BOLO of a composite of a suspect that had been issued. 

Police officials released a statement Friday night that said detectives determined that a report of a robbery on Nov. 28 at 3 p.m. on Gadsden Street did not happen. 

Authorities are investigating. 

The victim originally told officers she was leaving the parking lot of 66 Gadsden Street in downtown Charleston when she was shoved from behind by a male suspect. 

"She fell to the ground and the suspect began assaulting her while trying to take a backpack she was wearing," a report at the time stated. "She kneed the suspect in the groin and he fled the area on foot."

The suspect had been described as a white male in his 30’s with a husky build and shaggy brown hair and was wearing a black beanie cap and a red hooded sweatshirt with white letters on it.
