Greenville Police say they have arrested a suspect who assaulted and robbed a clerk at a Trade Wilco station Friday.
Curtis Ray Roundtree, 38, of Edwards Bridge Rd. in Grifton is charged with common law robbery and assault on a female.
Greenville Police say they had assistance from Ayden Police in the arrest of Roundtree at his home in Ayden. The police report says he was arrested without incident Tuesday night.
WITN aired surveillance pictures of the suspect at the crime scene. Police say people called Crimestoppers and identified the man as Roundtree.
Greenville police detectives believe Roundtree robbed the store because of an addiction to drugs. This is Roundtree's first arrest. His bond has been set at $20,000.
It happened at the Trade Wilco at 502 SW Greenville Boulevard around 11:00 p.m.
Police say the robber got some beer out of a cooler, put in on the counter and then went behind the counter where the employee was standing. The man struck the woman employee on the side of her head with his fist and then took the money from the cash register.
Anyone with information is asked to call Pitt-Greenville Crime Stoppers at 252-758-7777.
