Richland County Sheriff's deputies released surveillance video of a man attempting to rob a gas station at knifepoint, hoping someone will recognize him.

Deputies say the robbery occurred at the Kangaroo Express in the 800 block of Broad River Road at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, July 26.

Sheriff Leon Lott said the man walked into the store and pretended to buy something. Once the cash register was opened the man reached over the counter. When the clerk closed the cash drawer before the man could get any money, Lott says the man pulled a knife and threatened her with it. The woman fled into a back office and called 911.

The man ran off.

If you recognize the man in the attached video, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC.
