JOHNS ISLAND, SC - A man armed with a sawed-off shotgun robbed another man of $40 at an ATM on Johns Island on Saturday, according to a Charleston police report released Tuesday.

About 9:50 p.m., police were called to the Wachovia ATM at 3575 Maybank Highway, where a 29-year-old James Island man reported that he was getting cash from the ATM when he was approached by a man who pointed a sawed-off shotgun at the victim's head and demanded money. The victim turned over the two $20 bills he had just withdrawn and drove away.

The victim went to his place of employment on Main Road and dialed 911, the report said.

The robber was described as a black male, wearing black shorts, a black T-shirt and another black T-shirt over his face. He was 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall.
