Deputies seek armed robbery suspect

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) - Beaufort County Sheriff's deputies are seeking two suspects for an armed robbery that happened outside of Frankie Bones restaurant.

The victim, a Frankie Bones employee, was sitting in her car in the parking lot talking on her cell phone and as soon as she ended her call, two Hispanic men approached her car. One of the suspects got into her car and threatened her with a knife while the second suspect reached through the driver's side window and put his hands around her neck.

Deputies say the attackers tried to take the victim's work apron, which contained an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspects eventually left the scene taking only the victim's cell phone.

The victim was left unharmed. The suspects are described as two Hispanic men between the ages of 18 and 20, approximately 5'7". One suspect was wearing a gray sweatshirt and the other a blue sweatshirt.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to please contact the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
