ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson County deputies are seeking a person of interest in an armed robbery investigation.

Deputies said they were called to the Hickory Point at 5503 Highway 187 about 2 a.m. Thursday after a man covered in camouflage robbed the convenience store at gunpoint.

Deputies said the person of interest entered the store prior to the robbery. He was wearing a dark colored hoodie and tan pants, deputies said. The man also had dark, thinning or receding hair and dark facial hair.

Deputies said the person of interest arrived in a dark four-door sedan.

The clerk at the store told deputies that a short time after the person of interest left, the robber came in pointing a semi-automatic handgun and demanded the cash from the registers and his cell phone.

Deputies said the robber was wearing a full-body camouflage suit, a black mask with a white and green skull on the face and a camouflage stocking cap. They said he ran away toward Nunally Road, but they did not locate him.

No one was injured in the robbery, and the suspect got away with the clerk's cell phone and about $50, deputies said.

Deputies asked that anyone with information call the Anderson County Sheriff's Office at 864-260-4400 or Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIMESC (274-6372).
