CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are still looking to identify a person they say attempted to rob a Walgreens while carrying a child more than a year ago.

According to Charlotte Crime Stoppers, the attempted robbery happened around 8:51 p.m. on Nov. 20, 2021 at the Walgreens at 2215 West Arrowood Road.

“This child is innocent, had nothing to do with it. It appears she may not have even known what was going on,” said Officer Rick Smith, the CMPD’s Crime Stoppers coordinator, in a 2021 interview with WBTV.

Police said the male suspect entered the business and threatened the use of a dangerous weapon.

Anyone with information should call 704-334-1600.
