MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach Police Department is looking for an armed robbery suspect that robbed the Circle K gas station at gunpoint on 65th North Kings Highway.

The suspect entered the store around 10:40 p.m. and went to the bathroom, according to a MBPD report. He left the bathroom and went back in a second time. The suspect went and grabbed a grape soda and waited in the line behind the customer in front of him. When he got to the register he threatened the clerk with a gun to give him the money or he was going to kill her.

He referred to the victim by name, and then said: "I want you to open the drawer and give me all the money or I will blow your brains out," according to the report. After getting the money, the suspect left around the side of the store.

The suspect is described by police as a 30-to-40-year-old black male, about 5-feet-7-inches tall, 160 pounds, with pimples on his face. The suspect was wearing a black hoodie with a maroon colored long sleeves shirt underneath. He had on black pants with maroon basketball shorts underneath them. The suspect wore a black hat and white and blue canvas shoes. The suspect was seen having all gold teeth and was not wearing gloves.
