Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating an armed robbery that occurred early Saturday morning.

Deputies responded to the Salt Creek Drive West area just before 2:30 a.m. Saturday in reference to an armed robbery call.

When deputies arrived, they met with a 22-year-old male who said he was robbed by a group of unknown black males.

The victim said he was walking to his girlfriend's house on Salt Creek Drive West at approximately 1:40 p.m. when two black males in hooded sweatshirts approached him.

The victim then said he saw headlights from a vehicle approaching behind him.

When the vehicle stopped, four more black males got out.

All six suspects approached the victim and rummaged through his pockets. The victim described all six suspects as carrying assault rifle style weapons.

The suspects took the victim's money and cell phone, then got into the vehicle, described as a dark Chevrolet Tahoe, and left the area.

The victim was unharmed and walked to his girlfriend's house and reported the incident to the police.

A search of the area yielded no contact with any witnesses or evidence, and the victim was unable to provide any further description of the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact either Investigator Sgt. J. Gobel at 943.255.3421 or Crimestoppers.
