Robber flees SC hotel as clerk pulls a golf club

Oct 6, 2010 7:05:00 AM - thestate.com
Hilton Head Island is known for its plush golf courses. So perhaps it was no surprise when a hotel clerk used a golf club to chase away a would-be robber.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reported a man with a ski mask and a gun came into a hotel early Sunday and demanded cash from the clerk.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's report says the 60-year-old clerk shoved the robber, who hit the clerk in the face with the gun.

The clerk then grabbed a golf club and chased the man out of the hotel.

The clerk's name was not released. Deputies haven't found the robber.
