The owner of a Hilton Head Island movie theater said he was robbed and had his face injured by a man in the theater's parking lot Sunday night.

The 56-year-old man, whom Beaufort County Sheriff's Office deputies did not name, called for help at about 11 p.m. from the Northridge Plaza Cinema 10 at 435 William Hilton Parkway, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

The man, whose face was bleeding, told deputies he was walking to his car with a bank deposit bag when an unknown man appeared and asked for the time. As the victim looked at his watch, the assailant attempted to punch him but missed. A second punch hit the victim's face.

The suspect took his deposit bag, which contained an undisclosed amount of cash, and left in a small, blue, two-door car driven by a woman.

The suspect is black, about 6-foot-2, 200 pounds and between 20 and 30 years old. He wore dark clothing. No description of the driver was provided.

The victim was treated at Hilton Head Hospital for a "large laceration" to his face.

Anyone with information about the suspects in the case can call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
