ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) -

Police are asking for the public's help in finding a vehicle that is believed to be involved in two robberies that occurred in Walmart parking lots in Rock Hill between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

According to the Rock Hill Police Department, a woman was allegedly robbed when she was leaving work from the Walmart on Dave Lyle Boulevard around 11:37 p.m. Wednesday night. The woman told police that a man reportedly grabbed her from behind and stole her wrist purse and her iPhone 6S+. 

The man fled from the scene in a burgundy colored vehicle that had tinted windows, a witness told police. The witness said the vehicle had a broken tail light. 

The woman said the man was wearing a camouflage mask, black hoodie and black pants. Police said they found the woman's cell phone, which was completely destroyed, in a nearby intersection. 

Several hours later, another woman called police and said her daughter was robbed in the parking lot of the Walmart on Old York Road around 1 a.m. Thursday morning. A woman told police that she was loading groceries into her car and her handicapped daughter was sitting in the passenger seat when the robbery occurred. 

A man reportedly grabbed her daughter's purse and pushed her into the driver's side of the vehicle, the police report states. The man then fled the scene, the woman said.  The woman claims the man was wearing a blond wig, a ball cap, a long sleeve flannel shirt and jeans. 

The man is believed to have fled from the scene in the same burgundy vehicle that was used in the previous Walmart robbery. 

Police tweeted that they are looking for the suspected vehicle wanted in the two robberies. 

If you have any information about these robberies, you're asked to call the Rock Hill Police Department at 803-329-7297.
