A York County Sheriff's Office investigation of an armed robbery in Fort Mill was hampered this week when the 22-year-old victim couldn't provide enough details about the two men he says stole $102 from him.

The incident happened around 12:30 a.m. Thursday as the man was walking away from a gas station, near Pleasant and Vista roads in Fort Mill, according to a sheriff's office report.

When a deputy arrived on scene for the armed robbery investigation, he found the man running on Vista Road, the report states. The man told authorities that he was leaving a nearby BP gas station after buying cigarettes when an older model green car pulled up beside him to ask if he was okay.

The police report lists the man as being from Bessemer City, N.C.

When the suspect car stopped beside him, he saw a revolver sitting in the passenger's lap, he told deputies. The passenger then "pointed the revolver at him and demanded his money," according to the report.

The man handed over the money in his wallet -- $102, the report states. The two men in the car then sped off, heading towards Gold Hill Road. Later, the men turned the car around and passed him again, headed toward S.C. 160., according to the report.

The man provided the sheriff's office with the license plate number for the car which authorities say is registered to a 2003 Buick Century at an address in York. Deputies checked the listed address but could not find the vehicle.

No arrests have been made in relation to the armed robbery.
