WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Police in Winston-Salem are looking for a robbery suspect who they say wore black pantyhose over his face when he stole a woman's purse.
Investigators were called to an apartment in the 100 block of Spring Rum Drive shortly after 12:15 a.m. Tuesday.
Police spoke with two women who were going to a friend's home when they were approached by the man on the second floor of the building, according to the police department. They told police he pointed a small gun at them and said something along the lines of, "give me all your cash."
Officers said at that time the woman living in the apartment - who was expecting her friends - opened the door and witnessed the robbery. The man pointed the gun at that woman, but took one of the other women's purse and left.
A police K-9 was unable to pick up a scent because of the traffic from residents and guests, according to investigators.
Police describe the man as a 20-year-old black man with a slim build, about 5'10" to 6' tall and wore a purple t-shirt and shorts.
Police are still investigating this incident and ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (336) 727-2800.
