Sheriff’s Office Investigating Armed Robbery


BEAUFORT, SC (April 12/10:30 AM) – The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed robbery that took place in the area of Rivers Hill Rd late Saturday night.

Just after 11:00 pm, Sheriff’s deputies responded to the area of 21 Rivers Hill Rd where they made contact with a 53-year old male victim who advised he’d just been robbed by two unknown white male suspects. The victim stated that he’d left his residence on Rivers Hill Rd to get his mail from the mailbox at the end of the road. As he was leaving the mailbox, he advised he was approached by the two suspects.

One of the suspects struck the victim in the head with what the victim believed to be a bottle, and took the victim’s wallet and cell phone. Both suspects were then seen getting into and fleeing the area in a light blue sedan.

The victim was unable to provide descriptions of the suspects other than white males between the ages of 18-30, possibly both wearing blue shirts. He was transported to Beaufort Memorial where he was treated and released for a laceration to the head.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to contact either Investigator Cpl. J. Kelleher at 842-470-3217 or the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
