LANCASTER, S.C. -- A man delivering papers to a business in Lancaster was robbed by two armed assailants, authorities say.

Around 4:20 Sunday morning, Lancaster County Deputies responded the The Speedee Mart in the 1400 block of Pageland Highway to a reported armed robbery.

Deputies say a 45-year-old man, who was delivering papers to the business, had finished stocking the paper box and walked around to the dumpster to dispose of some garbage.

That's when officials say the victim was ordered to the ground at gunpoint, and robbed of money and his wallet.

The suspects fled the scene in an older model green car, deputies say.

The victim was not injured.
