A 57-year-old Bluffton man was robbed at gunpoint by two men outside his Estates at Westbury Park apartment Sunday, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

The man was returning home from a gym to his Kensington Boulevard apartment at about 8 p.m. when he was approached by two men, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

One held a gun to his head and pushed him in the door. They ordered him to lie on the ground as they searched his apartment.

After grabbing the man's gym bag, which contained a handgun, a wallet and prescription medications, they ran.

Both robbers were described as black, wearing jeans and dark-colored sweatshirts. One also had a white bandana covering his face.

Anyone with information about the incident should call the county dispatch at 843-524-2777.
