NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - North Charleston police arrested two men early Saturday morning after responding to a strong armed robbery at the Owner's Box bar.

The incident happened at the bar located on Rivers Avenue around 1:30 a.m., police say.

According to the report, 29-year-olds Anthony Ray Lett and Brian Drayton tricked a man into following them into the bathroom where they began punching and kicking home before taking his wallet containing $300 in cash.

Police say Lett and Drayton approached the victim with three women and asked him if he would like to do something with them.  The victim chose to dance with one of the women, and followed the suspects into the bathroom when they told him they had something to give him.

Another person at the bar walked in on the attack and Lett and Drayton fled the scene, police said.  Reports indicate that the witness tried to detain Lett, a Ridgeville native, who dropped the wallet while trying to flee.

A patrolling officer was already outside the bar due to a previous call, and both suspects were taken into custody immediately.

Both men are charged with strong armed robbery.

The report states that the victim's face was very bloody and swollen.  He was taken to Trident Hospital.

The wallet and $300 were recovered at the scene.

    The tallest points of downtown Charleston has shifted from steeple tops to towering cranes building the next high-rise. In downtown Charleston, the intersections of Meeting and Woolfe Streets to Meeting and Huger Street are only about a half mile apart. One apartment complex already exists in that area (Elan Midtown) and sits at 97% capacity with more than 200 units. Over the next year, four more apartment complexes will be built and opened.
