VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL)-- Lowndes County deputies have arrested a man on Saturday in connection to a robbery at Bo's BP gas station.

Police took into custody 20-year-old Harvene Demps after a clerk said she was robbed and assaulted.

The clerk said an armed African-American man entered the store and demanded that the clerk give him the money in her cash register.

She complied but then says she was hit several times with the suspect's handgun.

He then ran out of the gas station, reportedly taking the money, cigarettes and lottery tickets.

The clerk was treated at the hospital with minor injuries.
