Spartanburg Sonic Clerk Robbed

Posted: Updated:
Spartanburg, SC -

Spartanburg Public Safety officers are investigating a robbery that happened Sunday morning at a fast food restaurant.

Captain Art Littlejohn of Spartanburg Public Safety stated that the incident happened at the Sonic at 2076 East Main Street around 9:30 am. According to a report, the man approached a clerk and made a large order. He then asked the clerk if she had change for a large bill and when the clerk returned with his order, the man reached into her apron and grabbed her change wallet.

The man ran a down East Main Street toward Bradford Grove Apartments. Littlejohn said that police officers and a Spartanburg County K-9 deputy searched the apartment complex for the suspect, but they believe he managed to escape in a gray SUV.

Nobody was injured during the robbery, he added. 

The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5'8" tall and weighs 150 pounds. He was wearing a basketball jersey and blue jean shorts.

The incident is similar to another robbery that happened on Friday at the Sonic at 3121 Boiling Springs Road in Boiling Springs.

According to a report obtained from the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office, a man ordered some food from the clerk. When the clerk went to bring him the food, the suspect grabbed her change billfold and ran off across Highway 9 toward another fast food restaurant.

The suspect in that robbery, described as a black male wearing a doo rag and no shirt, managed to get away with $45. Nobody was injured during the robbery.

Officials could not say whether the two robberies are related, but they are checking into the possibility.
