Suspect sought in armed robbery attempt


A suspect is wanted in connection with an attempted robbery Thursday morning at a Wells Fargo.

At about 10:35 a.m., Beaufort police were called to the Wells Fargo at 1011 Bay St.

Two Swanson Services employees told police that as they got out of the vehicle, another vehicle pulled up and a man got out, pointed a gun and demanded the deposit bag.

The victims ran in different directions and the employee who had the money ran into the bank, according to police.

The suspect was described as a black male who was wearing a hoodie and part of his face covered by camouflage material. The suspect was armed with an unknown type of handgun. No one was uninjured in the incident.

The investigation continues. Anyone with information can call Investigator Gutterson at 843.322.7969.
