The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office arrested a 48-year-old man in connection with an assault Sunday night at an Okatie gas station.

The clerk said the man entered the store about 8 p.m. and started yelling and cursing at her before buying cigarettes and two beers.
She said he pushed her, and when she threw her soda in his face, he slammed her head into the glass door at the front of the store.
