CROSS, S.C. (WCIV) -- The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man they believe robbed the Cross Convenience Store on Old Highway 6 Tuesday morning.

A spokesman with the sheriff's office say just before 8 a.m., the suspect came into the store, went into the restroom and then approached the counter to buy gum. The clerk told deputies that when he opened the drawer, the suspect sprayed him in the face with pepper spray.

Deputies say the clerk slammed the cash drawer shut and ran "toward a door away from the cash register to lock herself from the man" and called 911.

Deputies say the suspect made off with the entire cash register with its contents and drove off in a grey or silver, four-door sedan.

The BCSO has released a video showing the suspect and his car.

If anyone has any information on the person who committed this crime, please call the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office at 843-719-4412 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-CRIMESC.
