A woman with a goatee allegedly robbed a Kmart, according to police.

South Carolina Police are looking for a woman with a goatee, along with a female accomplice after they allegedly took $650 in merchandise last week from a Kmart.

The theft happened Wednesday night, in the Columbia store, involving two robbers, who fled the store with 10 caps and eight jackets, according to the Sheriff Department report of Lexington County.

A Kmart worker described one of the robbers as a black woman between 25 and 30-years-old, with dreadlocks, glasses and a goatee, which was misspelled in the police report.

When a second employee caught up with the two outside of the store, one woman raised her shirt to reveal a gun in her waistband.

The worker was warned that if they would be pursued he will immediately be shot.

A witness reported that the two women left the scene in a white Ford Escape.

Investigators are seeking the public's help to identify the woman with a goatee and her cohort. Tipsters are urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
