MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach police are investigating after a man said he was robbed in the early-morning hours Friday by suspects who put a knife to his throat.

According to an incident report from the Myrtle Beach Police Department, officers responded to the Circle K at 1009 Third Ave. South in reference to an armed robbery.

The victim told police he was walking home from work at the Hookah Lounge when a cream-colored Lincoln pulled in front of him near Third Avenue North and Cedar Street.

According to the victim, a man got out of the car and threatened him with a knife, at one point coming up behind him and putting the weapon to his throat, the report stated.

Two other suspects allegedly went through the man’s pockets and took $20. The three then all got back into the car and drove toward Broadway Street, according to the report.
