'I just prayed the whole time,' recalls pregnant store clerk beaten during violent armed robbery

Deputies search for 2 gunmen caught on surveillance video

GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C.

A Greenville County convenience store clerk who is five months pregnant was violently beaten and robbed at gunpoint.

The store clerk, Logan Adair, spoke Tuesday to WYFF News 4's Dana Griffin about surveillance video of the whole ordeal that was posted to Facebook.

"I just prayed the whole time, 'Please just let me get out of here alive. I want to see my kids again... Don't let them kill me. Don't let them shoot me,'" she said.

The armed robbery was reported Monday just after midnight at the V-Stop at 5916 Augusta Road, according to Greenville County Sheriff's Lt. Ryan Flood.

When deputies arrived, they learned that Adair had been physically assaulted and forced at gunpoint by two armed men, who entered the store demanding cash, Flood said.

After stealing money from the registers, the men left the store on foot, according to Flood.

Deputies used K-9 officers to track the men, but the dogs were unsuccessful, according to Flood.

Both of the men were reported as being black, according to Flood.

One of the men is described as being about 6 feet tall with a slim build, wearing a red hoodie with jeans and a white face covering.

The second man is described as more than 6 feet tall with a slim build, wearing a dark color hoodie with dark pants and a dark face covering.

Adair was taken to the hospital for treatment of her injuries.

She said she doing paperwork behind the counter when the robbery began.

She said the two men demanded she open the safe and got physical with her when she told them that she had no access to the safe.

The video shows one of the men repeatedly striking Adair on the head and face with a gun as she tried to open the cash register.

Adair's face still shows a mark above her eye on her forehead where she was struck.

After Adair told the men she was pregnant, she said one of the men kicked her in the stomach.

"They told me that they didn't care, they just wanted the money,"
Adair said.

Along with the cash out of the register, the men took her phone and her wallet, Adair said. She used an app to track her phone down to a street a couple blocks away from the store. She said they took the cash that was in her wallet, but left her phone, credit cards and license.

"I also have two girls at home, a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old ...so it's not just me-I have a family," she said.

"The whole time I was just thinking I was never going to see my kids or my boyfriend, again. And I was scared they were going to hurt the baby inside of me. It was just really scary," she said.

"They could have shot me at any given moment," Adair said. "I had two guns at me."
