Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, N.C. - Police are looking for the suspect that robbed two women at an area Dollar General.

It happened Sunday night at 7111 US Hwy 70 East.

The suspect then fled on foot toward Bayberry Road, crossing over both lanes of US Hwy 70. He’s described as a white male wearing a black ski mask, hooded camouflage coat, and faded blue jeans.
