A 31-year-old man says he was robbed by a man armed with a pistol and a tire iron just before 2 a.m. Saturday on the South end of Hilton Head Island, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
Warrants are out for the arrest of 41-year-old Dwan Valentino Doe for the crime, but investigators are still trying to track him down, a news release said.
Deputies met with the victim near the Treetops apartments early Saturday moments after the robbery. The victim said a stranger approached him at the Kangaroo Express convenience store and tried to convince him to go "meet some girls," according to the release.
The victim declined and drove away, soon noticing a vehicle following closely behind. The victim pulled into Lemoyne Drive and got out of the car, where the same man from the store approached with a tire iron, frisked him and took his wallet, the release said.

The suspect then pointed a pistol at the victim's head and took cash from the wallet before getting back into a small black pickup truck and leaving.
Investigators have since identified the suspect as Doe and gotten warrants for armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. His whereabouts are unknown.
Anyone with information about the robbery or Doe's whereabouts is asked to call investigator Cpl. J. Moran at 843-255-3422 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372).
