BURTON, SC (WTOC) -

The Beaufort County Sheriff's office is investigating the Sunday night armed robbery of a Burton gas station.

Deputies responded to Sunhouse Petroleum at 3448 Trask Pkwy at 9:45 p.m and spoke with the 45-year-old clerk who said an unknown black male had entered the store and asked for cigatettes.

As the clerk turned to retrieve the cigarettes, the suspect went behind the counter and placed a gun to her back.

The suspect emptied the register and fled the store, leaving the clerk unharmed.

The suspect was described as a black male between 25-30 years old, approximately 5'7 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black Yankees baseball cap.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to contact Investigator Sgt. J. Helleher at 845.255.3418 of Crimestoppers.
