Myrtle Beach police are investigating an early morning robbery that occurred at a Myrtle Beach business.
A March 26 police report said a black male in his early 20s robbed a 62-year-old man at Jimmigan's in the 6000 block of North Kings Highway. The robber made off with $1,500.
According to the report, the victim went to his truck around 8 a.m. March 26 to get some change. While inside the back door of his truck, the suspect pushed him against the vehicle, put a knife against his throat and demanded money.
The victim said all the money was inside, so the suspect walked the victim inside while holding the knife.
Once inside, the victim gave the suspect $1,500 out of his bag. When the suspect took the money, the victim noticed the suspect loosened his grip on the knife, so he grabbed it.
The suspect responded by punching the victim in the face and running out the door. As the suspect ran away, the victim threw the knife at the victim, but it bounced off him harmlessly, the report said.
The suspect was last seen running west on 61st Avenue North.
He is described as a black male in his early 20s and wearing a blue hoodie covering most of his head and face, though the victim said he was clean shaven.
The suspect stood about 5-10 to 5-11, weighed about 175-185 pounds and a medium build.
