An 18-year-old male ran from an armed robber Saturday evening in Burton after the suspect showed him a gun attached to his waistband and said, "Give me what you got," according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

The victim was walking between Taylor's Mobile Home Park and Beaufort Mobile Home Park when an armed man, described as black, with shoulder-length dreadlocks, wearing dark shorts and a T-shirt, approached him and demanded his possessions, according to the report.

The victim ran back to Taylor's Mobile Home Park, where he lives, and called 911.
