Authorities investigating armed robbery at Mount Pleasant neighborhood


Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Mount Pleasant neighborhood.

Officials with the Mount Pleasant Police Department say the armed robbery happened in the area of Gulf Drive early Saturday morning.

Responding officers say the victim told police that he was unable to sit or stand up due to bruising to his ribs.

The victim said he was walking across the street when he was jumped by two male subjects in a ditch alongside Gulf Drive. A Mount Pleasant police report states the victim was grossly intoxicated and slurring his speech while being questioned about the incident.

The victim told officers that the suspects took his wallet, and heard one of the suspects say "get the gun."

Authorities found a small caliber handgun, money, the victim's shoe and some money in the area where the incident reportedly took place.

Emergency crews transported the victim to MUSC.

Police are continuing the investigation.
