Johnston Man Robbed at Gunpoint Monday Afternoon

web posted November 20, 2012

JOHNSTON – A Johnston man walking on Monument Drive near Roland Avenue contacted police after he was confronted by three men in a car around 4 pm Monday. The victim told police the driver pointed a semi-automatic pistol at him and demanded money and he complied with the demand. The three men in the older model Dodge Dynasty fled the scene towards Highway 23. Johnston Police and Sheriff's Deputies converged on the area in an attempt to locate the suspect vehicle.

According to available information, the car is an older model light blue Dodge Dynasty with lots of rust and having an unknown South Carolina tag. The driver of the car was said to be a black male in his 40's with a light graying beard wearing a black hoodie with a Rhino emblem on the front.

The victim was unable to give a description of the other two men in the car other than the front seat passenger was a black male between 30 and 40 years of age and a back seat passenger being a while male, possibly in his mid to late 20's.

The victim was unhurt in the robbery.

Deputies patrolled several routes the men could have taken to leave Johnston but were unsuccessful in location the trio. 

Surrounding counties were given a BOLO (be on the look-out) for the suspects in the event they are spotted by another agency.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office at 803-637-5337. You do not need to give your name to provide information.
