October 4, 2018

The Aiken Department of Public Safety is searching for two men following an armed robbery Wednesday afternoon on Park Avenue in downtown Aiken.

Capt. Marty Sawyer, with Aiken Public Safety, said two black males approached a man walking at 1601 Park Ave. around 2 p.m. Wednesday and robbed him at gunpoint.

The victim had just cashed a Social Security check and the suspects must have known he had money in his pocket, Sawyer said.

The two suspects fled the scene on foot.

The Aiken County Bloodhound Tracking Team was called out to the area to search for the suspects, Sawyer said.
