A man with a handgun and wearing a bandana robbed a gas station in Port Royal at 9:20 p.m. Sunday, according to a police spokesman.
A clerk at the BP Smith Serv Oil Co. at 780B Parris Island Gateway described the robber as a black male, 6-foot-1, 180 to 190 pounds, Sgt. Andre Massey said Monday.
The clerk was alone when the man, wearing dark clothes and a dark bandana, demanded he get a bag and put cash from the register in it, Massey said. The clerk, who was not injured, said the robber ran toward the woods near Cypress Street.
A Beaufort County sheriff's canine unit was unable to find the robber.
