AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Aiken officers are looking for a man they say tried to rob a convenience store Saturday at Whiskey Road and Pine Log Road.

The man in the surveillance photos entered the Kangaroo Express during the early morning hours and tried to rob it, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety. The man did not show a weapon, but the clerk told deputies he believed the man was armed.

The man fled the store before he could get anything from the clerk, officers said.

Anyone with information related to the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Crimestoppers of the Midlands at 1-888-CRIME-SC (1-888-274-6372). Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
