Suspect identified in downtown robbery

Beaufort police identified one of three men Tuesday accused of robbing a Beaufort couple at gunpoint Sunday in the Beaufort Downtown Marina parking lot.

Jujuan Habersham, 23, of Ridgeland is one of the suspects, according to a news release.

The couple told police a man approached at about 2:35 a.m. as they walked toward their car, and asked for directions to Hilton Head Island. Two men then approached from behind. One demanded money, and when the woman offered him $5, he pulled a handgun and demanded she hand over her wallet, keys and cellphone. The suspects then ran.

Anyone with information on Habersham's whereabouts or the robbery should call Investigator George Erdel at 843-322-7958 or the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
