A 28-year-old man told police he was robbed at gunpoint while walking in the area near First Avenue and Chester Street late Thursday afternoon.
Myrtle Beach police were called about 5:30 p.m. to the area of Fifth Avenue South where the victim told officers he was approached by three men while walking in the area between Chester Street and First and Second Avenues South, according to a report.
He said one of the men said hello to him, and as he walked away, he felt a tap on his right shoulder. When he turned around he saw a black glock pointed in his face, the report says.
He said the other two men didn’t stop the armed suspect. The victim said that after he gave the suspect with the gun about $80, he said thanks, and then all three suspects took off, police said.
The investigation remains ongoing.
