The victim, 34, told a sheriff’s office deputy that he pulled up at a business on Hwy. 21 and that as he walked around the passenger side of his truck to get a pair of gloves, “an unknown black male came up behind him and stated ‘I know you carry money, give it to me,’” the report states.

The victim said he told the robber he didn’t have any money and that’s when the robber produced the weapons, described as a black handgun with orange sights.

The victim said the robber patted him down and then removed the victim’s black Coach wallet containing $790 in cash, a debit card, driver’s license and a work ID card. The robber then “took off across the neighboring business parking lot,” according tot he report.

According to the report, the victim described the robber as an African-American male with a full beard “wearing a beige hooded sweat shirt with an orange design on it, black skull cap and brown Timberland style boots.”

A K-9 unit was brought to the scene, but the suspect wasn’t located. The case is still under investigation.
