GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Police have arrested a 21-year-old man accused of attempting to rob a woman at an ATM in Goose Creek on Apr. 16.

The Goose Creek Police Department has charged Steven A. Withers II with attempted armed robbery.

Police say the attempted robbery happened at the South Carolina Federal Credit Union on 82 Bridgetown Rd.

Authorities say the victim was in her car at the ATM in the middle of a transaction when a man with a dark hoodie approached her from the rear of her vehicle and said,"Give me the money."

The victim then canceled the transaction. According to the victim, she felt threatened because the suspect was holding something in his right hand which was hidden underneath his sweatshirt.

The victim then pulled away from the ATM and drove off. According to police, the suspect then followed the victim on foot. Authorities say when the victim was stopped at a stop sign, she saw the suspect approaching her vehicle and turned on her bright lights.

She then drove away and looked into her rear view mirror and saw the suspect walking back towards the bank.
