Bluffton Kangaroo Express robbed at knifepoint Friday morning

Two black males robbed a clerk at knifepoint and stole a cash drawer containing about $145 from the Kangaroo Express on Fording Island Road at about 4:30 a.m. Friday, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

The suspect who pulled the knife wore a blue, hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans.

The second suspect wore a black sweatshirt with an Atlanta Braves cap, according to the Sheriff's Office. Both suspects covered their faces with cloth.

It is likely, given the location of the gas station, that the two escaped in a vehicle, according to Capt. Bob Bromage of the Sheriff's Office.

Investigators studied the crime scene Friday morning and are reviewing video footage, Bromage said.
