October 5, 2018

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

Officers continue to search for two black males after they robbed a man at gunpoint around 2 p.m. Oct. 3 at 1601 Park Ave., said Capt. Marty Sawyer, with Aiken Public Safety.

The victim had just cashed a Social Security check and was walking down Park Avenue when the suspects approached him, Sawyer said.

Investigators believe the suspects knew the man had money in his pocket.

After robbing the man, 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, but were unable to locate the men, Sawyer said.

Anyone with information on this incident or the two suspects is asked to contact Aiken Public Safety at 803-642-7620.
