Report: Video game night turns into robbery

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Nine people told Charleston County deputies a night of video games turned into an armed robbery when two men who had been there earlier returned with guns.

According to a Charleston County Sheriff's Office report, Kenneth Hutchinson and Stephen Nelson entered a Farmington Road home armed with handguns and told the nine people playing video games inside to get on the floor.

The report states Nelson put a gun against the head of one of the victims.

According to the report, Nelson and Hutchinson dragged a safe out of the house and tried to load it into a black Jaguar. One of the victims rammed the Jaguar with his SUV to prevent them from leaving with the safe, the report states.

The two suspects fled and were caught a short time later.
