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.
