Armed robbery at mortgage company on Silver Bluff

Investigators need your help to find the man who robbed the Hunter Mortgage Company off Silver Bluff Road in Aiken.

The call came in around 9 a.m. May 19 when an armed gunman walked in and demanded the employees turn over their wallets.

The gunmen were believed to have fled into a nearby wooded area, and the bloodhound tracking team was brought to the scene.

Investigators are still trying to figure out why the mortgage company was targeted.

The victims were "Four white females, one white male," says Charles Barranco, spokesman for the Aiken County Sheriff's Department. "We're not releasing the names because there are personal things taken from them and threats were made."

The suspect is described as a dark skinned male, possibly Hispanic, about 5' 4" to 5' 7" and about 150 to 170 pounds.

He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with dark pants and a blue and white bandana over his face.

No one was injured during the incident.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Aiken County Sheriff's Office.
