Winter Wonderland ice rink at South Park Mall robbed

Police say two people robbed the Winter Wonderland outdoor skating rink at gunpoint on New Year’s Eve, getting away with $5,000.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Police say they’re still looking for the people who did it. Thankfully, the employee who was there at the time was not hurt.

"I just can't believe they would do that during this season. That's not what it's about. This is supposed to be a fun happy place for the kids. It's about family time. That kind of ruins it," said Aubrey Grier, who was skating at the Winter Wonderland. 

FOX 46 Charlotte spoke with the employee who was there during the armed robbery, but he didn't want to do an interview.

We also reached out to Winter Wonderland, but they have not responded.

South Park Mall management says they have security patrolling around the clock. They did not say whether or not they will be making any adjustments after the armed robbery on New Year’s Eve.
