CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police are looking for three suspects after a man was robbed at gunpoint while walking his dog in downtown Charleston Wednesday.

According to a Charleston Police Department incident report, the 20-year-old victim was walking his dog on Bogard Street near Percy Street around 11:15 a.m. when he was approached by two young men, who asked him if his dog bit people.

After the victim told the suspects his dog was not aggressive, one of the men pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the victim's face and told him to give him "everything he had," the report states.

The dog owner gave the suspects his iPhone 5, his wallet containing two debit cards and a credit card, and $20 in cash.

The victim said the suspects ran east down Bogard Street before jumping into a vehicle driven by another suspect, who turned onto Coming Street. Police would not identify the vehicle.

The suspects were described as black males standing between 5'7" and 5'11" weighing about 150 pounds, appearing to be between 17 and 20 years of age.

If you have any information regarding the crime, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
