ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) – Police are looking for the man they say robbed a Circle K in Rock Hill while armed with a camouflage-colored pistol.

According to the Rock Hill Police Department, officers were called to the Circle K on Celanese Road for an armed robbery shortly before 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police met with the clerk, who stated a man approached the register and placed Reese’s Cups, a pink lemonade, and a camouflage-colored pistol on the countertop.

The man said, “Give me the money from the register, and no one has to get hurt,” according to law enforcement. He then grabbed the slide of the pistol and chambered a round, officers said.
