AIKEN, S.C.- The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is investigating an armed robbery at the Graniteville Recreation Center.

Officials say just after midnight the suspect approached a woman waiting in her vehicle in the parking lot, pointing a small semi-automatic pistol at her, demanding money.

The woman told officers She opened her door out of fear and the man put the gun to her head and then took her wallet and cell phone. She said he then left out the back entrance of the rec center, firing shots while running.

Officers searched the area but were unable to find him. He was said to be wearing an orange T-shirt, dark pants and had a white rag around his nose and mouth.
