    There can be a couple of reasons why a desciption is not provided in stories. Authorities may not have given us a description, or the description is so vague it doesn't really help identify a suspect. For example, we may be given a description of a white, black or hispanic male in his 20's wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt. That doesn't really help identify who the suspect may be. If there is an outstanding feature that really helps identify someone then we will provide a description.

    Is there a reason that we never get a discription of the perp?

    What is the description of this male and the name?

    The owners of these convenience stores care about one think, money, the bottom line. These employees probably make no more than minimum wage and have to risk their lives for chicken feed. It will only get worse as the economy bottoms out.

    The story doesn't give much detail - was the woman running this store alone at 2 a.m.? There have been a lot of these types of robberies in Greenville so it looks like the store owners would have people watching out for this type of thing - like sitting back behind the counter with a gun pointing the other way. Especially at 2 a.m. I'm glad the woman was not hurt.

    Melvin, you are exactly right. I've said it a million times, and will say it again. The laws change everyday to protect criminals, and their alleged "rights". LE is restricted on how they can handle them in the streets, and then the court system sugar coats their charges once they get there. Its an absolute disgrace.

    everyone needs to exercise their 2nd amendment rights and put a stop to these criminals...come on people, if they are going to be armed how is being unarmed going to save you? They dont care about you, why should we care about them?

    When is society going to get fed up with thugs who rob people. Even when these lowest forms of human life do get caught, the cop a plea and spend minimal time in jail if at all. Then they're back on the street purchase an illegal weapon and right back to business of usual of terrorizing law abiding citizens. May be when these thugs start becoming an endangered species then society will be safe, but I doubt it, because so many bleeding hearts out there protest that thugs have rights to.
