CAMDEN, SC (WIS) - Police are looking for several masked men who jumped two women making a night deposit for their employer on December 18th.

According to a police report, two female employees of Dollar Tree went to the Wachovia Bank on E. Dekalb Street around 10:45 p.m. to make their nightly deposit. The women parked two separate cars in the teller lanes and got out to make the drop.

Several men in ski masks came out of the shadows and approached them. One of the women began blowing her car horn over and over. As the other woman was making the drop in the deposit box, a man with a black pistol approached her and said "give me the money."  She said "no" and held on to the bag. 

The man then hit the woman in the head behind her ear with his gun. The woman fell to the ground and the perpetrator grabbed the deposit bag and all the men ran off. "Anytime anyone is willing to use physical violence where they're armed to get what they want, makes them extremely unpredictable," state investigators, "That level of unpredictability would concern me, as a law enforcement officer and should concern any citizen."

Police have not been able to identify the robbers, but say the victims described all of them as men wearing black clothes and ski masks weighing around 150 pounds and about 5'10" tall. The robbers got away with about $2000.00.

If you know anything about this incident you are urged to call Camden Police at 803-425-6035 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
