FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – The Florence Police Department needs the public’s help in identifying two men involved in an armed robbery.

On Tuesday night at around 10:20 p.m. on Highgate Street, two women were sitting in a car looking at pictures on a cell phone, according to Major Carlos Raines. Two black males approached the vehicle with bandanas covering the lower half of their faces.

One suspect, armed with a gun, opened the car and demanded one of the women’s purses. One woman started honking the horn while the other started calling 911.

The suspects took off, and when police arrived, they tried to use the K-9 unit to track them. Those suspects got away. They are described as black males between the ages of 17 and 20.
