Deputies search for attempted robbery suspect in Beaufort Co.


The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating an attempted robbery that occurred Sunday night.

It happened outside of a home in the 500 block of Spanish Wells Rd. just after 11 p.m. 

Upon arrival, deputies spoke with a 30-year-old male who reported an unknown black male had attempted to rob him at knifepoint.

The victim told deputies he had walked out of his residence to retrieve something from his car when he was suddenly approached by a suspect demanding money. When the victim replied that he did not have any money, the suspect tried to stab him. The victim blocked the attack and fled the area, running down Spanish Wells, and the suspect ran towards Diamondback Rd., according to BCSO.

The victim sustained a minor laceration to his hand and was treated at the scene.

The suspect is described as a black male between 25-30 years old, approximately 6'03", 180 lbs, wearing a black shirt and blue shorts.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information about the attempted robbery to contact either Investigator Cpl. B. Cooler at 843.255.3423 or SC Crimestoppers.
