Police search for Food Lion robbery suspects

More Information


Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Saturday were searching for two suspects wanted in the robbery of a Food Lion on North Graham Street. It's the second Food Lion to be robbed in the Charlotte area in just more than two weeks.

Police have not said whether the two cases are linked.

The most recent robbery happened around 7:30 a.m. Saturday when two suspects entered the Food Lion at 5624 North Graham St. and pointed a gun at employees, police said.

The suspected demanded money from the grocery store workers then left the scene. The victims were not injured in the incident.

Police did not immediately release whether the suspects were able to get away with cash.

On March 29, a man robbed the Food Lion at The Plaza and Matheson Avenue in similar fashion, using a gun to threaten workers there and running away afterward.

Investigators are still searching for that suspect.

In the more recent case, the first suspect is described as a black male who is of medium build and 5-foot-6-inches tall. He was last seen wearing a black jacket and black pants.

Police said the second suspect is a black man of medium build who is 5-foot-10 and was also wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information about the case should call the Crime Stopper’s tip-line at 704-334-1600, or visit http://charlottecrimestoppers.com.
