LANCASTER COUNTY, S.C. -- The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office is looking for two men responsible for the armed robbery of a business on Wednesday night.

Officials say two men, armed with a handgun, entered Antioch Grocery minutes after 9 p.m. One suspect jumped behind the counter and struck the clerk on the head.

The suspects demanded money from the register and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and merchandise.

According to the Sheriff's Office, a witness reported the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle parked in the driveway of a home just down the road from the store, and sped away on Highway 903 towards Lancaster.

The clerk was treated by paramedics for minor injuries.

If you have any information that may help authorities in this case, please call the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office.
