Crime Alert



Pitt and Montagu Street, Charleston SC

Approximately 11:10PM on 8 June 2012

The Victim observed two black male subjects and one black female subject while walking back to his vehicle, which was parked on Pitt Street, north of the intersection.  He crossed the street to enter his truck and stated he was sitting in the driver’s seat when approached by three subjects matching the people he had walked by earlier.  Suspect #1 opened the door to his truck and stated “Give me your money, give me your wallet”, while yelling at the victim the suspect had his hands pointed in the shape of a firearm and the victim believes the suspect was armed.  Suspect #2 approached the passenger side of the vehicle, opened the door and yelled profanities.  Suspect #3 stayed to the rear of suspect #1.  Victim handed over cash to suspect #1 and all three fled on foot north on Pitt Street.

Suspects’ Description:

    6’2″ tall, 180-200 lbs, 25-30 years old, thin build, dark t-shirt, jean shorts, pink/red baseball cap.

  1. Once inside the car, quickly lock all doors. Most people let their guard down once inside their car.
  2. Always be aware of your surroundings, and don’t be distracted by talking on your cell phone. Is the parking lot well-lit? Are there areas where a predator/thief could hide? Can they be under your car? Is a big van parked beside your car?
  3. Don’t stay Drive off as soon as possible, and make any adjustment/changes/calls later in another lot.
  4. Upon approaching your car look around, in, underneath and next to your car. I heard of a woman who had her foot licked by a pervert as she was trying to get into her car, or a woman having someone grab her ankles and making her fall, and then someone else attacking her once she fell.
  5. Beware of a van that has a sliding door. There could be persons who can quickly open that sliding door, snatch you to make you a sex slave.
  6. Listen to that inner voice. It is better and wiser to be safe than raped, robbed or dead.
  7. If you are alone wait until others walk by and join them from a distance.
  8. Avoid strangers. Again trust your instinct.
  9. Keep your cell phone in a pocket, or somewhere easily accessible.
  10. Carry some non-lethal personal protection product like a stun gun or pepper spray .
