BURTON, SC -

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating a home invasion and robbery that occurred Sunday afternoon at a Burton home.

Deputies responded to 1 Wellena Ct at 5 pm Sunday in reference to a reported armed robbery. Upon arrival, deputies met with four victims who advised that they had been robbed when three unknown black males made entry to the home.

The homeowner, a 59-year old male, advised he'd been in the kitchen cooking while his wife and her two friends were playing cards at the dining room table. Just before 5 pm, three suspects, one of whom was armed with a handgun, suddenly entered the home.

The male victim was advised not to move while the suspects went to the dining room. There, they took the money being used in the card game, and a purse belonging to one of the female victims. All three suspects then fled the home and were last seen running across Joe Frazier Rd into the woods. None of the victim sustained any injuries as a result of the incident.

All three suspects were described as black males between the ages of 25-30, all wearing scarves over their faces. One was reportedly wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, and the other two were wearing black hooded sweatshirts.

The Sheriff's Office K9 Tracking Team responded to conduct a search of the area. While some of the stolen money was located, no contact was made with the suspects.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to contact either Investigator Sgt. C. Wilson at 843-255-3409 or Crimestoppers.
