COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Columbia Police have released surveillance video of a man who dressed like a mummy while robbing a gas station at gunpoint to see if someone can recognize his mannerisms.

The robbery occurred just before 9 p.m. on July 28 at the Quick Stop in the 400 block of Trotter Road.

Police say the man, armed with a gun, was wrapped in white cloth so that no skin was visible.  He was wearing a dark blue jump suit, white gloves and possibly a tee-shirt over his face.

The robbery was captured on surveillance video, which is attached to this story.

Nobody was injured in the robbery.

Interim Columbia Police Chief Ruben Santiago hopes someone will recognize the man's behaviors or clothing and contact investigators. If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC. 

You can also text your tips to CRIMES (274637) and begin the message with TIPSC.
