Man robbed at knifepoint on Hilton Head

A 21-year-old Hilton Head Island man called the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office about 9:30 p.m. Monday to report he had just been robbed at knifepoint by three men.

The victim told deputies he was walking down Yacht Cove Drive when the men approached, demanded he empty his pockets and backpack, and threatened to stab him if he did not. The victim handed over his wallet containing an undisclosed amount of cash, and his backpack, which contained several prescription medications.

The three men ran, and the victim ran back to his apartment to report the crime. The victim was not injured.

The suspects were described as black men, 18 to 25 years old, wearing dark-colored hooded sweatshirts and dark-colored pants.
