Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office

A 17-year-old says an acquaintance robbed him at gunpoint on Sunday, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The teen told a deputy Monday that he noticed a white sedan driving up and down Kinard Street while he and his brother were playing football around 1 p.m. Sunday.

The vehicle then stopped in front of the brothers’ residence.

The teen said the driver, an acquaintance, exited the vehicle and approached him.

The driver allegedly pointed a black firearm at him and demanded that he remove everything from his pockets and his shoes from his feet.

The teen said the driver took the teen’s black/purple/white Jordan sneakers and $100 cash.

The teen said the driver walked backwards to his vehicle while pointing the firearm at him.

Investigators are continuing to look into the case. The incident location is under additional patrol for the next few weeks.
