Fox Carolina Reporting Oddly Raceless Suspect on the Loose in Greenville

A man robbed a Greenville Citgo this morning and Fox Carolina would like you to be on the look out for him. You’ll know him because he has a sweat shirt and is of average height and build:

GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) – Greenville County deputies said an armed man robbed a Citgo store in Greenville about 10:40 a.m. Wednesday and they were searching the area for the suspect.

Deputies said the robbery happened at the Citgo gas station at 2020 N. Pleasantburg Drive when a male wearing a dark bandana walked into the store, showed a weapon and demanded money from the clerk.

The man left the store and possibly got into a vehicle, according to investigators. He was about 5’6″ tall and 140 pounds wearing a black hoodie and a white shirt over it, tan pants and gray gloves.

There is also no description of his vehicle. So when you’re out there be on the alert for every young guy.

I’m not for racial profiling, etc but when you’re alerting the public to a dangerous person on the loose you should probably put in as much detail as possible – including race.

    Rob…EVERYBODY knows that absent of the details and armed man is white. If he’d been black it would have read. Armed African American Male Knocks off the Gas Station.
