Armed robbers steal wallet from man on Hilton Head

Two unidentified men robbed a third at gunpoint early this morning on Hilton Head Island, according to a release by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were called to the area of Yacht Cove Drive and William Hilton Parkway just after 2 a.m., where a 33-year-old man said he'd been outside smoking when he was robbed by two unknown black men.

A dark-colored sedan pulled up to him, and two men inside the car asked the victim for a cigarette. When he said he didn't have any more, the passenger pulled out a handgun and demanded his wallet.

He tossed his wallet into the vehicle, and the suspects fled the area.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to contact either Investigator Cpl. D. Nelson at 843-255-3412 or the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
