Two men dressed in women’s wigs come up empty in two burglary attempts in Charleston.
Charleston Police are looking for two men who were dressed up in wigs and padded shirts during two armed robberies Friday night. Investigators say a man who looked to be between 20-25 years of age came into the Triangle Lanes Bowling Alley at 11:20 p.m. and demanded money from the cashier. The cashier became nervous and turned away from the suspect. Police say the suspect then left the business without getting any money.
Five minutes later, two men entered the front lobby of a hotel that is next door to the bowling alley. Authorities say one of the suspects pointed a handgun at the desk clerk and demanded money. The clerk ran to the back room and the suspects fled the hotel before getting any money.
Officers say no one was hurt in either incident.
