Richland County sheriffs deputies are looking for a pistol-wielding man who robbed a convenience store Saturday night on Winnsboro Road north of Columbia.
The robbery at the S & S Corner Mart, 8308 Winnsboro Road, also known as U.S. 321, took place around 8:55 p.m. when a man displayed a pistol and then grabbed cash from the register, said a sheriffs department spokesman.
The man was described as about 35 years old with a slender build. When last seen, he was fleeing east on Blythewood Road toward Blythewood in a silver or grey Nissan Altima.
We are still investigating, sheriffs spokesman Curtis Wilson said.
The store is on a rural two-lane about 12 miles north of downtown Columbia.
