DARLINGTON, SC (WMBF) - Police are looking for two suspects believed connected to an armed robbery that occurred at Jin Jin Chinese Restaurant on 115 Pearl Street around 8:46 p.m. Tuesday night.

“We’re going to have crime in the city, but it’s a very small town, we know each other and we feel safe,” Carrie Stewart, who works in Darlington said."

That’s what Carrie Stewart had to say following an Armed Robbery that happened near where she works.

“One of them presented a weapon and demanded money. The other one snatched the cash register and ran out of the front door and the other went out the back,” LT. Kim Nelson, with the Darlington Police said.

According to a release from the Darlington Police Department, two black males, both tall and skinny, were wearing masks and dark clothing when they entered the business. One suspect pointed a weapon at the clerk and demanded money, while the other suspect grabbed the cash register and ran out.

A witness reported one suspect ran out of the back door and the other subject ran out of the front door.

Officers were on scene within minutes after the call came into central dispatch, however the subjects were not located.

The release also states that the Darlington County Dog Team assisted with the search of the area.

Although, police haven’t made any arrests in this armed robbery those who work nearby say they won’t be afraid to carry on.

“We have our security and typically we just let each other know what’s going on,” Stewart said.

And Darlington Police say that is sound advice as we enter this heavy shopping season.

“We’re just asking store owners to be vigilant, if they have any questions about who is in the store if there are people acting suspicious please don’t hesitate to call us,” Nelson said.

The Darlington Police Department is asking anyone with any information about the incident to please call (843)-398-4026 or 911.
