Armed robbery investigation under way in Bluffton

BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating an armed robbery that occurred in a Bluffton neighborhood Friday night. 

Just before midnight on Oct. 14, Sheriff's deputies responded to Shady Glen mobile home park in reference to a robbery. Upon arrival, deputies met with a 33-year old male victim who advised he had been robbed at gunpoint. 

The victim stated that he was putting his toolbox in his truck when a dark-colored car pulled up to his home. One of the men, armed with a handgun, got out of the vehicle and approached the victim while the driver stayed in the car. After taking the victim's wallet and toolbox, the suspect returned to the car and both men fled the scene, leaving the victim shaken up but unharmed. 

The suspects were described as black males between the ages of 18-22, driving a late 90's model Ford Taurus, black in color. The victim also observed that the rear bumper appeared to be damaged and hanging down on the driver's side. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact either Investigator Cpl. D. Seifert at 843.255.3414 or the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843.524.2777.
