ST. HELENA ISLAND, SC (March 14, 2012/9:45 AM) – The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed robbery that reportedly occurred late last night on St. Helena.
Just after midnight, Sheriff’s deputies responded to the area 863 Sea Island Parkway in reference to a robbery that occurred an hour earlier on Eddie Holmes Court. Upon arrival, deputies met with a 51-year old male victim who advised he had been robbed at knifepoint by two unknown black males.
The victim advised was walking on Seaside Road near Eddie Holmes Court at approximately 11:00 pm when he was approached by two black males in a green sedan. The suspects got out of the vehicle, pointed a knife at the victim, and demanded money. The victim handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the suspects fled the area, leaving the victim unharmed.
The victim then walked to the Sea Island Parkway address where he contacted law enforcement. Few details regarding descriptions of his attacker were available, as the victim appeared to be grossly intoxicated at the time the incident was reported.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to contact either Investigator Cpl. A. Zsamar at 843-255-3408 or the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
