The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help identifying a suspect wanted for 2 attempted robberies.

Just after 4 a.m. on May 18, the suspect pictured in this article entered the Circle K on Old 96 Indian Trail Road near Batesburg and demanded money. At around 4:30 a.m. the same morning, the same man attempted to rob EnMarket Convenience Store on Edgefield Highway in Aiken. A witness told investigators he fled the scene in a light-colored vehicle.

The suspect is described as a white middle-aged man with a medium complexion. He was last seen wearing a tan boonie hat, stained dark pants, and a white Nike pullover shirt. Investigators believe he may be responsible for other robberies in the CSRA.
