CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are asking for the public's help in identifying two robbery suspects.

Police said two men approached an employee of the Bojangles on Highland Shoppes Drive on Monday after he had just closed the business for the evening and was sitting in his vehicle.

The suspects robbed the employee of his phone and forced the employee back into the restaurant in an attempt to rob the business, according to police.

The suspects were unable to obtain any property from the business and fled on foot.

The first suspect is described as a black man with long dreads that he had pulled back and all black clothes. He covered his face with a cloth.

The second suspect is described as a heavyset black man with dreads and wearing long khaki cargo shorts and a black shirt.

Anyone with information concerning this case or the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
