Sheriff’s Office

Holly Hill’s Ocean Dragon restaurant was robbed Sunday, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The robber walked into the Old State Road restaurant at about 12:45 p.m. He appeared to have a gun, the clerk said.

The clerk screamed. Her husband heard the scream and came from the rear of the restaurant where he encountered the robber.

The robber demanded cash. Once the woman’s husband handed him cash, the robber demanded that the husband open the cash register and give him more.

The couple described the robber as a slim, dark black male, wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans with cuts. He had a black cloth around his mouth.

They said he seemed to be holding onto a black handgun in his undershorts as he told them to stop moving and hand over the money.

The robber left on foot toward the rear of CVS pharmacy next door.

Deputies notified the Holly Hill police chief of the incident.
