COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Richland County deputies are investigating an armed robbery at a Tripp's Fine Cleaners branch on Broad River Road Tuesday night.

According to Richland County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Curtis Wilson, the male suspect entered the store just before 8 p.m. and struck the clerk with a pistol.

The clerk was taken to Palmetto Health Richland to be treated for injuries. The clerk's condition is not known at this time.

As for the suspect, Wilson says investigators do not have a good description.

Deputies hope the release of surveillance video of the man entering and leaving the business will lead to his arrest.

If you have any information about this case, you are urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
