Conway police are investigating the robbery of a convenience store clerk, who was attacked from behind and more than $5,000 was stolen, according to a police report.
The 45-year-old woman told police she had left the store and was going to make a deposit from Gullies Shell station No. 12 at 1200 S.C. 544 when someone grabbed her from behind at 11 a.m. Monday outside the store, police said.
