A Rock Hill man was charged with armed robbery and pointing and presenting a firearm after a robbery at the Valero gas station on South Anderson Road, according to a police report.
Antwone Cousar, 30, was arrested Saturday night after an employee from the gas station identified him, the report states. The employee called police after she said a man wearing jean shorts, a sweatshirt and a baseball cap showed a gun and stole cash and a 12-pack of Corona beer.
When police arrived, they noticed a man walking on the road. He was wearing jean shorts and wasn’t wearing any shoes.
After handcuffing the man and putting him in the back of a patrol car, police searched the area and found his shoes by the side of the road. They also found cash in the median of the road and the gun, a sweatshirt, a hat and the beer on the side of the road.
The man had taken $531 in cash in addition to the beer. The gun was a pellet gun.
