Charleston County deputies are asking for tips in a Sunday afternoon armed robbery.

Officers from the sheriff's office and city police responded to the Li'l Cricket in the 600 block of Harbor View Road Sunday at approximately 4:25 p.m.

The victim told deputies a man entered the store with his hand in his pocket and ordered her to give him money. The victim said the robber had his sleeve pulled down over his hand when he grabbed the money off the counter and covered his face with a dirty rag, according to an incident report.

The money fled with cash toward Sterling Drive, deputies say.

Deputies searched the area with a K9 unit but were unable to find any leads.

The subject was wearing white baggy sweat pants and a white hoody, the victim said.

Anyone who may have seen anything that could help investigators should contact Crime Stoppers at (843) 554-1111.
