Pistol-wielding man robs convenience story

Mar 27, 2011 7:14:00 PM - thestate.com
Richland County sheriff’s 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 sheriff’s 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,” sheriff’s spokesman Curtis Wilson said.

The store is on a rural two-lane about 12 miles north of downtown Columbia.
