Woman robbed during yard sale, deputies say

Posted: Updated:
BELTON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson County deputies said a woman holding a yard sale was robbed at knife-point by two men.

The woman was holding the yard sale at a home on Broadway School Road in Belton on Saturday about 1:50 p.m. when she noticed two men arrive in a minivan and park down the street instead of in the driveway, according to a deputy's report.

The woman told deputies the men looked around the sale and waited until other shoppers had left then one of the men pulled out a box cutter and said "give me the roll."

The report said at the same time, the second man came up and pulled out a large hunting knife from his sleeve. Deputies said the men took the cash and ran back to their van.

The two white males were described as in their early to mid-40s and were both about 5'10" tall, according to investigators.

One of the men was described as wearing a light shirt and jeans, had a red scruffy beard and a hat while the other was wearing a light shirt, blue jeans and had longer, scruffy hair, according to the report.

The woman told deputies they were in a dark green, 1990's model minivan and fled from Griffin Road towards U.S. 29 North.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
