Two men are on the run after an early morning home invasion and the Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in locating them.
According to Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson, at about 12:45 a.m.† this morning, two black males entered a home on Bessellieu Drive in the Santee Community through a back door. The two armed suspects forced the victims to the floor and demanded money. The suspects fled the scene in an unknown vehicle and unknown direction of travel. No one was injured during the incident.
The first suspect is described as a black male, mid-thirties in age, 6’0” in height, medium build and a darker complexion. The second suspect is described as a black male, mid-20s, shorter in height than the first suspect, and wearing faded blue jeans with white lettering on the back and a pair of green, grey and black Nike Bo Jackson shoes.
Anyone that can identify the suspects or has any information about the robbery is urged to call the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office at (843) 546-5101.
