Greenwood County deputies are investigating reports of an armed robbery Tuesday afternoon.
According to a county incident report, the victim told officers he met the suspect while making a purchase at Walmart about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The suspect asked the victim for a ride, and the victim agreed. After the vehicle exited the Walmart parking lot, the suspect reached into his waistband, as if he had a weapon, and asked the victim if he had any cash.
The suspect then asked the man if he had access to bank funds and had the man drive to a Bank of America ATM machine on Laurel Avenue and withdraw an undisclosed amount of money from his grandfather's bank account.
The suspect then ordered the victim to drop him off near Reynolds Avenue and Grace Street, and the suspect got out of the car and fled the scene.
