Man allegedly robs motorist at gunpoint

A 27-year-old Hilton Head Island man allegedly was robbed at gunpoint while sitting in his car Sunday on Spanish Wells Road on the island's north end, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

The man told deputies he was sitting in his car at about 5 p.m. when a man with a handgun jumped into the vehicle and stole his cell phone, GPS and about $300 in cash. The robber then ran away. The man drove to a phone and called 911, according to the report.

The robber was described as a Hispanic man between the ages of 17 and 21, about 5-feet-2-inches tall, 150 pounds and wearing black shorts, a red sports jersey, sunglasses and a baseball cap. He also had a large mole on his cheek or nose, the report said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 843-524-2777.
