Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- The Richland County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance in identifying a Strong-Armed Robbery suspect.

Saturday, Oct. 26th, just after 8:00PM, the pictured suspect entered the Office Depot store in the 10,000 block of Two Notch Road, and was caught on surveillance video jumping the counter and grabbing cash from the register.

The suspect pretended to buy an item at the cash register, and when the clerk opened the cash drawer, the suspect jumped onto the counter, blocked the clerk's attempts to fight him off, and grabbed hand-fulls of money from the drawer.

The person pictured is believed to be connected to similar Strong-Armed Robberies in Lexington County.
