A 25-year-old man told authorities he was robbed by two men on Leg O' Mutton Road at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

According to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office 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 to a black Lexus parked on Leg O' Mutton Road and drove away 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 between the ages of 25 and 30. One was described as about 6-foot-4, the other 5-foot-7. The shorter suspect had thick dreadlocks, and the taller suspect was dressed in all-black clothing, the release said.

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