WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Sheriff's Office has released surveillance pictures of two men who robbed a gas station in West Ashley.

On Sunday night,  deputies responded to an armed robbery at the Circle K at 2407 Ashley River Rd.  The victim said two men entered the store with black handguns.

The victim also told police that she was not sure if both guns were real, but one gun appeared to be fake.

The suspects then pointed their guns at the clerk and demanded money.

According to police, the suspects went behind the register, took money from two cash registers, and stole four to five packs of Newport cigarettes.

A Charleston Police Department K-9 unit followed a track which led to the parking lot of Charleston Atlantic Presbytery on 2421 Ashley River Rd where investigators believe the suspects left in an unknown vehicle.

The victim described the first suspect as a black male, 6'1", 165 pounds, wearing a black mask, blue hoodie, black pants and gloves. According to the victim, the second suspect was a black male, 5'3", 185 pounds, wearing a dark green mask, camo hoodie, black pants and gloves.
