The Williamson County Sheriff's Office is investigating an armed robbery that happened on Thursday north of Johnston City, in which three suspects brandished weapons and demanded all of the victim's property.

According to a news release from the Sheriff's Office, the victim said he was walking in West Frankfort when he accepted a ride in a silver pickup truck from a female acquaintance and three men whom he didn't know.

They drove to a remote location north of Johnston City, and two of the men pointed handguns at the victim and the third displayed a knife. The men demanded all of the victim's property. The victim was forced from the truck, and the four drove away.

The victim described the truck as a silver extended cab four-by-four. He could only describe the suspects as white males, according to the release.
