A Rock Hill convenience store clerk is counting his blessings after fighting off an armed robber. It happened at the Sunoco Express Mart off Saluda Road. Randy Nunoo told police he stepped away from the register for just a moment last Friday night when a man wearing a ski mask and gloves and armed with a sawed-off rifle suddenly ran into the store. The suspect yelled at Nunoo to hand over the money and threatened to kill him. Fearing for his life, Nunoo grabbed the barrel of the rifle and the two began to fight for control of the weapon. The struggle was all caught on surveillance video. It continued for several minutes throughout the store finally ending in the parking lot. That’s where the suspect ran away and Nunoo gained possession of the rifle. During the struggle, the suspect fired the gun five times, including once, which was caught on the surveillance tape and shows windows to the front doors being blown out. He ran back in and called for help. He told authorities he was able to pull the ski mask off of the man at one point, identifying him as a neighborhood regular who had recently been banned from the store for shoplifting. Nunoo suffered minor injuries and plans to return to work later in the week. Meantime the suspect, 18-year-old Octavius Jones, is in the York County jail facing charges including armed robbery and aggravated assault with intent to kill.
