Gunman robs Clover-area business

A Clover-area gas station clerk was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday morning, authorities say.

The clerk was working at Hot Spot on U.S. 321 when a man walked in the business about 4 a.m., according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report. The man used a T-shirt to cover his face and was wearing blue surgical gloves. He pointed at a gun at the woman and demanded money.

The clerk gave him an undetermined amount of money and he ran out of the gas station, the report states.

Deputies talked to a witness, who said a car had pulled in his driveway, turned its lights out before backing into the roadway. The witness then heard a car door slam and saw the car speed away.

A K-9 unit was called to the scene, the report states.

The report does not list a suspect description.
