On April 21, around 4:20 a.m., a Georgetown man was victim of an armed robbery at the intersection of Petigru and Grate in Pawleys Island, according to the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office.
The victim told deputies he had been robbed at gunpoint. He said he had been hanging out and riding around in the backseat of a vehicle with a man and a woman in the front, when the man pulled a silver/chrome semi-automatic pistol, pointed it at the victim and demanded his money.
The victim told police he gave the man about $200 and then jumped out of the car, ran toward the intersection and fell. The vehicle left toward the intersection of Petigru and Waverly.
The police report noted the victim was clearly scared and the knees of the victim's pants were dirty, consistent with him falling on them. He told deputies that the male suspect lived on Parkerville Rd. and the female lived in Georgetown. The victim is from Charleston.
The victim then asked police if he could use the bathroom, went around the corner and disappeared. The deputies were unable to locate him.
