A York County convenience store was robbed at knifepoint Sunday night, police said.
The Springdale Superette on Springdale Road, just outside the Rock Hill city limits east of Dave Lyle Boulevard, was robbed around 9:30 p.m., said Trent Faris, spokesman for the York County Sheriff’s Office.
Police are searching for two male suspects, ages 18 to 25, according to the sheriff’s office. The suspects are described as white men between 5 feet, 8 inches and 6 feet and between 150 to 180 pounds.

After entering the store wearing masks, one of the suspects pointed a knife at the store’s owner while the owner tried to fight off a second suspect behind the counter, according to a police report. The suspect with the knife tried to stab the owner multiple times, police said.
The suspects took $432.80 from the cash box before one of the suspects threw the box at the store’s owner, cutting his cheek, the report states.
The suspects then fled the store on foot toward Red River Road, according to the police report.
Police tracked the suspects to the area of Dave Lyle Boulevard and found money and clothing, the report states. Due to high winds, police were unable to continue tracking the suspects.
Investigators are still working the case and no other information about the robbery was available Monday.
