BEAUFORT, SC (WCSC) - Investigators are looking for two suspects who left a man stabbed in the neck during an armed robbery on Wednesday.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office responded to the Ramblin Rose mobile home park before 5 p.m. in regards to a stabbing victim.

When deputies arrived they found the 39-year old man suffering from a laceration to the neck. The victim said that he'd been injured as the result of an attempted armed robbery.

The victim said as he was walking, he was approached by two males.

An incident report states that one suspect demanded money and began going through the victim's pockets. The victim said he resisted and a physical altercation ensued. The suspects then fled on foot, failing to take anything from the victim.

Upon arriving at his family's home, the victim said he realized that he was bleeding profusely from a large wound on his neck.

The victim was transported to Beaufort Memorial Hospital where he was treated and later released.
