ORANGEBURG, S.C. — Orangeburg County deputies need your help to identify one of two suspects they say broke into a home over the weekend and robbed the residents at gunpoint.
Around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, two armed men reportedly forced their way into an Orangeburg home carrying rifles residents believed to be similar to AK-47s, according to an incident report.
One intruder reportedly put a gun to a resident’s head, told him to back up and asked where the valuables in the home were. The two suspects made off with around $2,000 worth of electronics, including several cell phones and computer software. The suspects are believed to be in their twenties.
A composite drawing of one of two suspects was released Wednesday afternoon. “We’ve been able to get a description of one of these suspects,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. “A forensic artist came up with the likeness that we’re releasing in this case.”
