The York County Sheriff’s Office has released a video of two male suspects wanted in connection with a convenience store robbery Sunday night.
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.
One of the suspects in the robbery pointed a knife at the store’s owner, while the owner tried to fight off a second suspect behind the counter, according to a 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.
The case is still open.
