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.
