SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Deputies said there were two robberies late Monday night and early Tuesday morning in Spartanburg county.
The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said the first occurred before midnight at the Zaxby's on East Main Street in Duncan.
The incident report said that employees in the back of the restaurant when they heard someone scream "get on the ground." They saw a black male wearing a dark blue hoodie and blue pants enter the back of the restaurant and point a silver revolver at them.
The report described the suspect as a black male between 40 and 50-years-old, approximately 5-feet, 10-inches tall, 180 pounds, wearing a black baseball cap, black sunglasses and carrying a black book bag. The hoodie had "Roca Wears" in white letter on the front.
The suspect demanded they fill his bag, according to the report. He saw an employee in the office closing the safe and demanded she open it.
The report said the employee was too shaky too open the safe, causing the suspect to threaten to shoot her, so another employee opened it. The suspect took an unknown amount of money and left out the back of the restaurant.
Surveillance video showed the suspect use a blunt object to smash the lower portion of the right side door to the business and leave the restaurant in the direction of E. Main Street.
Four hours later deputies said they were called to the Circle K on Asheville Highway in Inman.
Deputies said no one was hurt and they don't believe the cases were connected.
