Police hope sketch will help identify man

Police in Charleston, South Carolina, have released a sketch of a suspect in an armed robbery. The victims were robbed at gunpoint of their wallets on Sunday by two assailants, police said

The incident was reported at 11:18pm in front of the Carolina Yacht Club. A couple in their 50s and their 29-year-old son, all from Moore, were walking when a man and woman walked up behind them.

The man pulled out a gun and started yelling, “Give me your cash or I’ll kill you.” The woman also threatened to kill them but didn’t show a gun. The male suspect was described as black, about 6 feet tall, 180 lbs, wearing a bandana on his head.

The female suspect was described as black, 5 feet 4 inches tall, with short hair, heavyset, and wearing a long-sleeved white shirt with dark writing on the sleeves. If you have information on the suspects, please contact police.

I'm assuming the police didn't have the latest face-construction software at hand?

What would be hilarious is if someone looked at the drawing, said, "Oh yeah, that's xxxx," called the cops and it turned out to actually be that guy.


I'm also reminded (as it happened several times) of robbery videos being shown on my local TV stations where the robber or robbers are fully masked, and viewers are asked to call in if they "recognize" the perpertrator(s).

Sometimes a person's gait or clothes can be recognizable, Lurker.
