The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is searching for two men who robbed a Lady's Island bank Tuesday afternoon.
Two men, one armed with a handgun, entered BB&T at 1 Kemmerlin Lane at about 12:15 p.m. and demanded money. They left with an undisclosed amount of cash and ran toward Club Road, according to a news release.
The robbers were described as black and 5-foot-7 to 6 feet tall. One wore a baggy white shirt and dark baggy pants. The other was wearing a baggy black shirt and dark baggy pants. Both had white cloths over their heads.
No injuries were reported.

The Sheriff's Office established a perimeter around the bank, and its K9 tracking team searched the area, the release said.
It was the fourth bank robbery in Beaufort County in less than two months.
On June 24, a black man wearing a red dress, a black hat, a wig and purple glitter lipstick robbed the Regions Bank on Lady's Island before pedaling away on a bicycle, according to the Sheriff's Office.
On July 1, two black men held up the Atlantic Community Bank on the south end of Hilton Head Island. One wore a white golf shirt with gray stripes and a black hat; the other wore a black shirt and jeans, and covered his face with a pillowcase, according to the Sheriff's Office.
On July 14, a white man robbed TD Bank at 1021 Fording Island Road in Bluffton, placing a paper bag on the counter and demanding cash. The man told tellers he had a gun. He was described as 5-foot-7, 175 pounds, with brown hair and a goatee. He was wearing a long-sleeved, dark-blue plaid button-up shirt, blue jeans, white sneakers, a blue baseball cap and sunglasses.
No suspects have been arrested in connection with any of those robberies.
"There has been nothing to suggest any relation among the three previous robberies," Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Robin McIntosh said. "It's too soon to say if there is anything linking today's robbery with any of the prior ones."
