Police release surveillance photos in Circle K armed robbery

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -  North Charleston police are looking for a man they say robbed the Circle K convenience store on Dorchester Road at gunpoint last week.

According to police, an armed black male entered the Circle K on West Montague Avenue on the morning of Jan. 6 and approached the clerk, threw a red bag at him and demanded money. Police released several surveillance photos of the suspect Friday.

The suspect took money from the register as well as from a customer, then left the store.

Another store clerk attempted to chase the suspect until the suspect pointed a pistol at him.

The clerk described the suspect as 20 to 25 years of age with a Jamaican accent. The clerk said he was wearing gloves, a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The clerk told police that the suspect looked like someone who had been at the store a couple of times before the robbery. 

No one was injured during the robbery. If you have any information you are asked to call police.
