Deharvene Sanchez Demps, 20, is facing charges of Armed robbery, false imprisonment and aggravated assault.

Lt. Stryde Jones with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office said "The clerk at Bo's BP was preparing to close up for the night when a male entered the store, produced a handgun and began demanding money from her."
