NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - North Charleston Police are looking for Ashani Harris.

Harris, 18 is wanted for armed robbery in connection with the May 31 incident at Master Cuts Barbershop on Dorchester Road.

Police say Harris and an accomplice were in the business right before the robbery.

"They both walk out then they both come back in and that's when one of them brandished a firearm, tells the owner you know you're being robbed," said North Charleston Police Sgt. James Hill.

Police say one of the two suspects pulled out a big gun, possibly a .357 magnum.

"Anytime you're looking down the barrel of a gun, you're terrified, so he had every right to be scared, but he did what he was supposed to do," Hill said.

Investigators Harris previously has been a customer at the barbershop and knew where the victim kept his cash.

"When he said he didn't have any they said we know, give us the money, it's here," said Hill.

Harris stands 5'10" and weighs about 210 lbs.

His last known address was on Marilyn Drive in North Charleston.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
