— Three suspects robbed a man at a Monticello Road gas station in the pre-dawn hours of late April.

And Richland County sheriff’s deputies are asking for your help locating them.

At 4:30 a.m. April 30, at the Exxon gas station at 6000 Monticello, a victim was filling the gas tanks when he was approached by a female suspect and asked for his cellphone. When he said he didn’t have one, two male suspects approached, pointing handguns. They knocked the victim to the ground, dragging him behind the dumpster and demanded cash.

The suspects stole cash, a flashlight and a calculator before fleeing.

One suspect is described as a white female, with blonde hair, wearing blue jeans, and a white shirt.

Another suspect is described as a black male, tall and skinny, wearing blue jeans, blue shirt with a white collar and wearing a blue bandanna covering his face.

The third suspect is described as short and stocky, wearing white pants, brown jacket and a white bandanna over his face.
