Three men robbed at gunpoint in Bluffton

Three men were robbed by a man wielding a shotgun at Bluffton's Shady Glen mobile home park early Sunday, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office news release.

Three men -- ages 25, 26 and 37-- said they had been robbed at about 2 a.m. by two black males, according to the release.

They were in the driveway of a home when a light-colored sedan drove up, and two men, dressed in black clothing and wearing red bandanas over their faces, approached.

The man with the shotgun struck one of the three men in the head with the butt of the gun, while the other emptied the men's pockets. The pair then fled.

The man who was assaulted had minor injuries and refused medical treatment, the release said.

Anyone with information should call the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
