A 25-year-old man reported he was robbed by two men on Leg O' Mutton Road at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

According to a news release, the man was approaching the Indigo Run traffic circle when two black males suddenly appeared behind him from a wooded area.

The suspects demanded his watch and money, which the victim handed over. The two suspects then fled back to a black Lexus parked on Leg O' Mutton Road and drove off toward Marshland Road, the release said.

The victim, who was not injured, called law enforcement from a nearby fast food restaurant on Nature's Way.

The suspects are described as black males, both between the ages of 25 and 30. One was described as about 6-foot-4, the other 5-foot-7. The shorter suspect reportedly had thick dreadlocks, while the taller suspect was dressed in all black clothing, the release said.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to contact Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372).
