The Horry County Police Department is searching for a man who authorities say assaulted and robbed someone early Thursday morning in the Conway area.

Officers were called to the 1900 block of S.C. 544 around 2:30 a.m. for a report of a robbery that resulted in one person being injured, said HCPD spokeswoman Mikayla Moskov in a news release.

The victim was purportedly beaten and robbed by a gun-wielding suspect. The suspect may also have a handgun that was stolen from the victim.

The victim’s truck that police say was stolen by the suspect was found abandoned near Holly Lane.

The suspect is described as a heavyset black male wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt. He should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to call the HCPD tip line at 843-915-8477 or email crimetips@horrycounty.org.
