Deputies from the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office arrived at a Wendy’s restaurant on Palmer Grace Drive in Okatie at 11 o’clock on Friday evening after receiving a report of an armed robbery.
The manager of the restaurant told officers that an African-American male arrived at the restaurant clothed in a gray sweatsuit and a camouflage covering to hide his identity.
The man withdrew a black handgun and asked for money. He promptly fled the scene in an older, silver sedan after receiving an undisclosed amount of money. The car is believed to be a Honda.
