WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - Police are investigating an armed robbery that happened late Wednesday at a convenience store in West Ashley.

Charleston Police Department officers said the armed robbery at the Kangaroo Express at 1141 Old Towne Road happened just before 11 p.m., when two men entered the store and held the clerk at gunpoint before taking cash from the register.

Police were not able to provide a description of the suspects.

It's not the first time this store has been hit either. Police say a man tried to rob the store in late January, but fled before the clerk could hand over any cash from the register.

If you have any information regarding the incident Wednesday night, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
