Myrtle Beach Police are investigating a robbery outside a laundromat in the 1100 block of 3rd Avenue South.

The incident happened about 10 p.m. March 20 as the laundromat employee closed the business and walked to her car. What kind of world do we live in when you can’t even wash your underwear and walk to your car?

As she opened her car door, the suspect approached her from behind.

According to the police report, the suspect then tried to push the victim into the car.

The victim attempted to fight off the suspect by giving him a flying elbow and hitting the car horn.

The suspect was able to grab the victim’s purse and took off on foot, according to a the victim’s statement in the police report.

The victim described the suspect as a black male in his mid 20’s to 30’s, approximately 5-foot, 7 inches or 5-foot, 8 inches, he had an earring in his left ear and was wearing a black and white sweater, dark colored jeans, and he was basically the Hamburglar.

Suspects in Halloween masks attempt to rob Murrells Inlet Subway

Go where the cash is, they said. The Murrells Inlet Subway will be a GOLD MINE, they said.

The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an attempted robbery at the Subway restaurant in the 3900 block of U.S. 17 Business in Murrells Inlet.

About 6 p.m. March 19, two suspects wearing Halloween masks and black clothing entered the restaurant carrying baseball bats, because that’s totally a foolproof plan and not conspicuous at all.

The employees fled out of the back of the restaurant to call 911, meanwhile the suspects attempted to steal money with baseball bats. Or played a game of pickle.

The pair was unsuccessful because, well... because of baseball bats, and left in a small tan 4-door sedan.

Anyone with information is asked to call the George County Sheriff’s Office at 843-546-5101.
