Crime & Safety

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two individuals in an ongoing armed robbery investigation.

According to the Savannah Police Department (SPD), officers responded to the incident around 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 5, at the Mini Mart located at 5208 Waters Avenue.

A suspect was caught on camera entering the business and demanding cash from an employee. Described as a Black male, he ran away after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash.

It’s been over two weeks since the crime occurred, and SPD says they’re still working to identify the suspect. They’re now looking for an unidentified woman wanted for questioning in the case.

On Monday, the department released a still photo of the woman they say was seen on surveillance video just before the armed robbery occurred.

At the time, she was wearing a black Champion sweatshirt, blue jeans and Nike flip-flops, with long blonde and burgundy hair.

Anyone with information on the individuals is asked to call SPD’s Violent Crimes Tip Line at 912-525-3124.

Information can also be submitted anonymously to CrimeStoppers at 912-234-2020 or online. Tipsters may qualify for a cash reward.
