Rock Hill police released a picture Wednesday of a Charlotte man they say duct-taped a Family Dollar clerk and robbed the store a week ago.

Police are looking for Winslow B. McMoore, 44, of 8316 Suttonview Drive in Charlotte, said Lt. Jerry Waldrop of the Rock Hill Police Department.

"We want anyone who knows the location of this individual to call the police," Waldrop said. "He is considered armed and dangerous."

McMoore faces several charges, including armed robbery, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and two counts of kidnapping, Waldrop said.

The charges stem from an armed robbery that happened last Thursday at Family Dollar at 851 Heckle Blvd. Around 8:30 p.m., police say, a man approached a 20-year-old female employee and her 39-year female co-worker and demanded money.

The man duct-taped the 39-year-old woman and led the other woman to a cash vault, where he took an undisclosed amount of money. He also took money from the cash register, the police report states.

Police later identified the man as McMoore. His criminal history reflects an assault charge that dates back to 1979, according to the State Law Enforcement Division.

Last September, McMoore was charged in North Carolina with assaulting a female, said Julia Rush, communications director for the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office.

Anyone with information leading to McMoore's location is asked to call the Rock Hill Police Department at 329-7200 or CrimeStoppers of York County at 1-877-409-4321.
