CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – A 60-year-old convenience store clerk reported that she was robbed last Wednesday morning, and assaulted by a robber, causing severe injuries. The suspect was recently arrested in West Virginia after a traffic stop. 

On Friday, police identified the robber as 35-year-old Salvador (Chez) Ware, of Conway. He was being sought for kidnapping, assault in the first degree, and strong-arm robbery. He was also considered armed and dangerous. 

A traffic stop led to Ware's arrest by U.S. Marshals and Clarksburg Police in West Virginia Tuesday, according to WBOY, the NBC affiliate in Clarksburg. Ware will appear in court before he is extradited back to South Carolina.

At approximately 6:33 a.m., Horry County Police officers responded to an alarm at the Scotchman at 510 Highway 544 in the Conway area, according to an Horry County Police news release.

The clerk reported she was assaulted during the robbery and had severe injuries that required medical attention. The robber left with an undetermined amount of money.
