Ultra Diamond in Tanger Outlet Center 2 in greater Bluffton was robbed at gunpoint just before 9 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

A man walked into the store and went to the counter with a necklace. Instead of paying for the necklace, he pulled out a gun.

He then demanded money from two cashiers and forced them at gunpoint into a back room before leaving with an unknown amount of jewelry and cash.

He was described as white, 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, wearing a yellow and gray polo tank top. He had a rash or severe acne on his chin and was wearing large diamond rings on each hand.
