Aiken authorities continue to search this morning for a suspect who held a pistol to a baby's head while robbing its mother.

The 19-year-old woman said she was standing in her front yard on the 200 block of Whispering Pines Terrace around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when a man approached from behind, said Aiken County Sheriff’s Capt. Troy Elwell.

The man pointed a black, semi-automatic handgun to the 2-month-old infant’s head and told the victim, "Your money or your baby," Capt. Elwell said. The mother emptied her pockets and threw the money on the ground.

The man ran from the scene, but the victim followed him in her vehicle toward Pipeline and Bethel Church roads. The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office bloodhound tracking team also tried to track the suspect.

Witnesses say the suspect’s street name is “T-Mac,” Capt. Elwell said. He is described as a black man 5-feet 6-inches tall, 150 pounds with short facial hair.

Anyone with information can contact the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 648-6811.

Anyone who does something

Anyone who does something like this is not deserving of a trial. You just put down rabid dogs. The people need to stop relying on police and learn to protect themselves. Take out the Trash!

If we had a warrant out for

If we had a warrant out for him dead or alive, he would turn himself in within minutes. What is with these guys that they hate and disrespect their mother so much that they have to change their names to something only punks would love?
