HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) About two weeks after a man reported to be robbed at knife point and forced to undress inside the restroom of a local restaurant, Horry County Police have identified a suspect and are asking for help in locating him.
Sgt. Robert Kegler, spokesman for the Horry County Police Department, said officers responded to the Buffalo Wild Wings in the Myrtle Beach area around 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 27 in reference to an armed robbery.
A victim told police he was using the restroom at the restaurant when he was forced into a stall at knife point by an unknown black male. The suspect demanded his wallet, cell phone and keys and then forced the victim to undress before he fled the restroom.
"When he left, I put my boxers [and shorts] back on, didn't even worry buckling the shorts, belt, nothing. I chase him out barefoot and that's how I I.D. the car," said Justin Moore, the robbery victim, in an interview with WMBF News Reporter Mark Meredith on Tuesday.
The suspect was then described as being between the ages of 23 and 28, standing 6'2" and weighing around 250 pounds. He is said to have a goatee.
Additionally, the victim's credit card had been used several times before it was canceled in the Conway area. Surveillance photos from those incidents show the same suspect described in the robbery.
Monday, Kegler said detectives had identified a suspect.
Officers are searching for Anthony Lee Drumgoole, 23, who is now wanted on charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and four counts of credit card theft.
An address for Drumgoole is unknown, said Kegler, however he is known to have family ties to both the Conway area and Rochester, NY.
He should be considered armed and dangerous.
