WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Police say a man armed with a rifle was arrested after he attempted to rob a convenience store in Williamsburg County Wednesday night.
Kingstree police charged Nathan Battle with the attempted robbery of the Sav-Way store on Highway 52.
Investigators say Battle tried to enter the store but the door was locked. A police report states that as Battle ran away, officers chased him into a nearby neighborhood and arrested him.
It's the second time this week the store was involved in a robbery. On Monday, investigators say a man armed with a rifle or shotgun entered the store, took money and ran away.
Detectives say they are not sure if Battle is the same person who robbed the store Monday night.
