MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with an armed robbery, which occurred at the Hardee’s restaurant located at 402 South Kings Hwy., on Saturday morning.

According to the incident report, the reported robbery happened before 5:30 a.m. An employee told police she saw the suspect walk across the parking lot and heard what sounded like a gun racking.

The suspect had both the employee and the store’s general manager empty the drawers and the safe of all the money, according to the report.

Before leaving, the suspect reportedly had the two victims go into the store’s walk-in cooler. He then closed the door and pushed something in front of it.

The report stated the two were able to get out of the cooler and call law enforcement.

According to police, the individual is described as a tall, black male, approximately 6 feet 2 inches to 6 feet 5 inches tall, with a deep, raspy voice.
