Police are looking for a man they say robbed a Forest Drive convenience store at gunpoint shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday.
The suspect entered the store at 5424 Forest Drive, showed the store’s clerk a gun, then demanded money from the register, Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons said in a statement released Friday.
Surveillance video captured the suspect robbing the store.
The suspect is described as a black man last seen wearing a black T-shirt, dark blue jeans, a reddish-orange bandana around his face and a dark Cleveland Indians hat.
The clerk also described the whites of the robber’s eyes as discolored and yellow.
The clerk complied with the robber’s demands and the suspect fled the scene on foot. No one was hurt during the robbery, Timmons said.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
