According to a Sumter County Sheriff's Office news release, deputies responded about 8:35 p.m. Friday to an armed robbery at The Station convenience store, 5480 Florence Highway in Mayesville.
According to the release, deputies discovered the store clerk had been hit on the head by an unknown object.
Investigators reviewed footage from the store's security system and observed a black man (about 5'10", 180 pounds), with a thin beard, wearing dark clothing, a black fishing/'boonie' style hat and a pair of white gloves.
After the assault, the suspect went behind the counter and took money from the cash register and several other items before fleeing on foot, according to footage.
The victim was in stable condition Saturday at McLeod Health in Florence.
Anyone with information is asked to call Sumter County Sheriff's Office Investigator Jennifer Thomas at (803) 436-2002 or CrimeStoppers at (803) 436-2718 or 1-888-CRIMESC. You do not have to give your name and could get a cash reward.
