A couple walking on Dillon Road were robbed at knifepoint by two men riding beach cruiser bicycles just after 2 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
The husband and wife reported they were walking to a store on Mathews Drive on a bike path when the men approached. One grabbed the 33-year-old man and held him from behind, while the other began searching his pockets, according to a news release.
As the man struggled, one of the robbers took out a knife and demanded belongings. After taking the 26-year-old woman's purse and her husband's wallet, the men fled. Neither victim was injured, the release said.
The suspects are described as black, between the ages of 20 and 29, both about 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, wearing all black clothing. One had a black baseball cap turned backward and a small amount of facial hair under his lower lip, the release said.
