PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) -

School district officials said two Piedmont area schools were locked down after a nearby armed robbery Tuesday morning.

Greenville County deputies said they were called to the Family Dollar at 8090 Augusta Rd. about 11:30 a.m.

A Greenville County School spokesperson said Woodmont Middle School and Sue Cleveland Elementary School were locked down for awhile because of the armed robbery, but the lockdowns were lifted after deputies said the robber had left the area.

Deputies said the robber entered the store, demanded money from the clerk at gunpoint then fled the scene in a vehicle.

Deputies said the man was approximately 21 years old, was wearing a gray ski mask, jacket, was 5'10" tall and weighed about 108 pounds.

No one else was inside the store at the time of the robbery and no one was injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 864-23-CRIME.
