Two Men Wanted in Radcliffe Place Robbery

(CHARLESTON, S.C.) -- Police are on the lookout for two men wanted in connection to a Radcliffe Place robbery.

The 22-year-old victim told Charleston Police she was robbed outside her home at 21 Radcliffe Place just before 3 a.m. Sunday.

Two unknown black men allegedly approached the woman as she was entering her residence, with one pointing a firearm-shaped object at her and demanding her purse.

The victim told officials there was a small struggle over her property, and the suspect pressed the object against her face while the other struck her arm to loosen her grip on the purse.

Both men fled on foot toward Radcliffe.

The suspects are described as being between 16 and 19 years old, both approximately 6'0" with thin builds. One had dreadlocks while the other suspect had a buzz cut.

Anyone with information is asked to contact local law enforcement.
