The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating an armed robbery that occurred in the North Forest Beach area last night.

At approximately 10 PM last night, Sheriff's deputies met with an 18-year old male victim who reported having been robbed at gunpoint by two unknown black males and a Hispanic female.

The victim, who is in the area on vacation, advised that he and a female friend left the Comfort Inn at approximately 9:30 PM to put gas in their vehicle. The female stayed at the gas station, pumping gas, while the male went across the street to the Beach Market located at 2 N. Forest Beach Drive.

The male advised that he'd gone to the Beach Market to purchase T-shirts and to meet with a female subject, whom he'd met a few days prior and arranged to purchase marijuana from. The victim advised that as he waited in the Beach Market parking lot, a white older model Honda Accord pulled in, driven by the female subject.

The victim reported that two males pulled the victim into the back of the car, pointed a gun at his face, and emptied his pockets, taking a cell phone and an undisclosed amount of cash.The suspects then pushed the victim out of the car and fled the scene, leaving the victim unharmed. The victim ran back to his own vehicle and returned to the Comfort Inn where he and his friend notified law enforcement.
