Posted: Updated:
St. Helena Island, SC -

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating an armed robbery and carjacking that occurred outside a home on Lands End Rd early this morning, according to a press release issued Wednesday.

Officials say "Just after 6 am, deputies responded to 35 Lands End Rd in reference to a reported assault. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with a 30-year old female bleeding from a laceration to the head. The victim advised she was walking to her vehicle after dropping her child off at a family member's house, when she was assaulted by an unknown black male.

The victim stated the suspect approached from the nearby woods, wearing all camouflage clothing, a black mask, and was armed with a handgun. The suspect pistol-whipped the victim and took her purse and car keys. He then fled the area in the victim's vehicle, and was last seen heading towards Sea Island Pkwy.

The victim was transported to Beaufort Memorial Hospital for treatment. Her condition remains undisclosed at this time. The stolen vehicle is a burgundy 2008 Chevrolet Impala bearing SC license plate 7264FN.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to contact either Investigator Cpl. B. Disbrow at 843-255-3407 or Crimestoppers."
