Customers at QT in Lake Wylie are now looking over their shoulders.

YORK COUNTY, S.C. — A gunman stole a woman's car while she was pumping gas at a convenience store in York County, police said.

It happened at Quick Trip on Charlotte Highway near the state line around 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The woman said she was standing at the pump when she was approached by a man with a gun who took her car and everything in it.

"Well, I'm shocked."

Customers at QT in Lake Wylie are now looking over their shoulders.

"You can't be careful enough, I guess."

The suspect showed the 64-year-old woman a gun then got in her Lexus and drove away.

"How could it happen in such a busy place?"

A spokesperson said detectives are now reviewing surveillance video to try to get more clues about what happened and how.

A violent crime like this is unusual for the area.

We took a look at recent crime reports from the last month and found a couple of thefts, breaking and entering, but nothing like this.

"I would say that's desperate or something and it troubles me and I am deeply sorry and I hope they find the car and the purse and restore it to the lady."

There was $1,000 in the woman's purse plus a $2,500 laptop in the car. Police said they found the car in Charlotte, however, they still haven't found the suspect.
