3 suspects wanted in Georgetown home invasion

GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) Investigators with the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office are looking for three men suspected of invading a home off of Highmarket Street in Georgetown.

Carrie Cuthbertson, spokesperson for the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office, says police are looking for the three men that they believe burglarized a home on Amelia Street at 3 a.m. Monday.

One victim in this crime told police one suspect entered their bedroom with a handgun and forced them into their living room with two other occupants of the home. All three victims were bound as the suspects demanded money.

The suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of money, taking one of the victims with them as they drove to a home on Foxfire Court. The suspects left the victim at that home and fled the scene in a different vehicle, Cuthbertson said.

Two of the assaulted victims were transported to Georgetown Memorial Hospital for treatment of their injuries. Sheriff's deputies canvassed the area, but were unable to locate the suspects or anyone who witnessed the incident.

The victims described those suspects as two black males and one white male, all wearing masks at the time of the incident. The white male stands approximately five feet five inches to five feet six inches tall with sandy blond hair.

One black male suspect stands approximately five feet 11 inches and weighs 215 pounds. The second black male suspect stands five feet nine inches with a slim build.

This case is currently under investigation and anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office at 843-546-5102.
