MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Myrtle Beach police are searching a man they say robbed the Circle K on South Kings Highway early Sunday morning.

Around 5:40 a.m., police arrived on scene to find the register drawer laying on the floor at the entrance and multiple coins strewn across the floor.

The victim said a black man standing 5-feet-10 inches tall to 6-foot and weighing between 200 and 220 pounds came into the store asking for change, according to the police report.

When the victim went to give the suspect his change, he grabbed the register drawer and threw it to the floor. The suspect picked up the drawer and threw it on the ground again after it didn't open, stated in the report.

The suspect got away with an undetermined amount of cash.

The suspect was wearing a black skullcap with red writing, a gray zip-up hoodie with a white shirt underneath it, torn dark blue or black jeans on the left front of the pants leg near the thigh with light blue basketball shorts underneath, and white or gray tennis shoes.

If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Myrtle Beach Police Department.
