Gunmen Rob Lady's Island McDonalds

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT COUNTY, S.C. -

A search is on in for Beaufort County for two gunmen who investigators say robbed a Lady's Island McDonalds Sunday morning.

It happened just after 1:30 a.m. at the restaurant located on Sea Island Parkway. 

Investigators say five employees were inside the restaurant during the robbery. One employee told police he'd been working on the roof when he saw the two masked gunmen approach a co-worker at the back door of the building.

Once inside, investigators say one of men grouped the employees up while the other forced a manager to open a register and safe. The suspects then took the employee's cell phones and ordered them inside a walk-freezer.

The suspects fired a shot and then left the store with an undisclosed amount of money. None of the workers were hurt.

The Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information to contact either Investigator Cpl. A. Zsamar at 843-255-3408 or Crimestoppers.

MAKE THE CALL, STAY ANONYMOUS, EARN a REWARD: To report crime, citizens can call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372) or text the word TIPSC with a message to CRIMES (274637).
