Police ask help finding mall robber

Charleston police are looking for tips in last month’s armed robbery in a mall restroom.

A person was held up at gunpoint in the public restroom in the Dillard’s wing of the Citadel Mall about 4:20 p.m. Christmas Eve.

The robber was caught on surveillance video, and the victim gave enough details for an artist to create a composite sketch.

The robber is described as described as a black man with medium skin tone, a “high and tight” hair style, 5 feet 6 to 7 inches tall, 28 to 30 years old, with light scruffy facial hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call Charleston police at 577-7434 or leave an anonymous tip at Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
