CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A report states two suspects asked their victim for a cigarette before robbing him at gunpoint in downtown Charleston.

Charleston Police are searching for two men who they say used a handgun to rob a man near 25 Morris Street at 1:20 a.m. Sunday morning. The suspects later used the victim's credit card numerous times in Charleston and North Charleston.

According to a report, the victim says he was at the corner of Saint Philip Street and Morris Street when one of the suspects approached him and asked for a cigarette. The victim said he did not have one and began to walk down Morris Street.

Moments later, police say a second suspect crossed the road towards the victim and, while holding a gun, demanded everything in his pockets. The suspect who previously asked for a cigarette stood and watched.

Police say the suspects took the victim's I-Phone and his wallet, which contained money and a credit card, before fleeing the scene.

A report states that the suspects also stole the victim's cigarettes and his lighter.

Police describe the suspect who was carrying the gun as a black male in his early-to-mid twenties. He is 6-feet tall, a thin build, and has a goatee.

The other suspect is also a black male in his early-to-mid twenties. He is approximately 5'7 to 5'9, has a thin/muscular build, and has braided hair that is pulled back.

Police have identified a third suspect that has been involved in using the victim's stolen credit card. She is a black female in her early twenties, between 5'6 and 5'8, and wears glasses.
