North Charleston Police: 4 teens arrested after armed robbery, car chase
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) —
The North Charleston Police Department has arrested four teens in connection to the armed robbery of a 30-year-old man on the 5700 block of Dakota Street.
Randal Aspen Drayton, Christian Tyler Garcia, and Keenan Juwan Alexander Norris, all 19, have been charged with armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission a violent crime, and failure to stop for police.
Not pictured is a 17-year-old that was also arrested. Police have not announced any charges for that suspect.
Investigators say the teens stole $750 from the victim around 3:46 a.m. on Sunday, near Caliente's Bar on Remount Road.
Police say the victim reported being approached by four men parked at Little Caesars Pizza who demanded money.
The victim said one suspect then pulled a handgun from his waistband. He says they kept demanding money, and says one suspect took the gun, racked the slide, and pointed it at the victim.
The victim says he gave the suspects a Crown Royal bag with $750, his ID, and keys.
Officers say they saw a Chevy Impala leave the area when they arrived, followed by a man on a bicycle, who said they were the suspects who just robbed his friend.
Officers say they attempted to pull over the suspects' vehicle, leading to a chase on I-26 West, before exiting onto Ashley Phosphate Road, and eventually ending at the Plantation Flats Apartments.
Police say the victim positively identified all four suspects.
