Myrtle Beach police continue to search for two suspects for an armed robbery in the Coastal Grand Mall parking lot.

Cpl. Thomas Vest said that officials continued on Thursday to locate the suspects and a vehicle involved in the Wednesday incident. Shortly after 1 p.m. Wednesday, two male subjects approached two females who had exited their car and were walking toward the mall in the area of Belk.

According to Vest, the males showed firearms and took items from both victims. One victim was pushed to the ground during the robbery. The male subjects fled the area in a silver Kia Soul, and police provided a picture of the vehicle.
