SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - A man wanted in Dorchester County for a home invasion was denied bond for an attempted murder charge in Colleton County.

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office says 26-year-old Joshua Manigault was denied bond on Thursday for an attempted murder charge. A sheriff's office report states that Manigault was wanted for a shooting that took place on Henry Street near Walterboro.

Authorities say that a co-defendant in that case, Sharron M. Glover, turned himself in on the same charge, but Manigault remained a fugitive until Wednesday when deputies caught him after a foot chase near I-95 and Sniders Highway near Walterboro.

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office says Manigault is also accused of holding a pregnant woman and her three kids against their will during a home invasion in Summerville in March.

Manigault is wanted for first-degree burglary, four counts of kidnapping and armed robbery in the March incident. Authorities have also arrested 18-year-old Tevin Shaquille Hart and 24-year-old Martin Young III, both from Summerville, for the home invasion.

On March 29, investigators responded to a home on Apache Drive around 4:40 a.m. in reference to a home invasion.

Deputies met with the 26-year-old victim and her three children who ran to a neighbor's house across the street after the home invasion.  The woman told the deputies that three to four men had entered her home with guns. Deputies then requested EMS to check on the woman since she is thirteen weeks pregnant.

The woman said that she and her three kids were sleeping when she heard her dog jump off the bed and started to bark and growl.

The woman said she was then startled when the suspects kicked open the laundry room door. The sheriff's office said that the woman attempted to run to her bedroom when one of the suspects kicked in the door, ordered her to the floor and took her cell phone.

The suspect then sat on her lower back with the gun to her head. The victim said she was afraid for her life and the lives of her children and begged the suspect to take whatever they wanted and to leave her children alone.

The suspect then said to her ,"Don't worry, wrong person, wrong house."

An incident report states that the victim's children were crying and were told by the suspect to stay in their rooms. At that time, one of the suspects asked her if her dog would bite his brother. The victim said yes. Police say the suspect allowed the victim to put the dog outside in the backyard.

After putting the dog outside, the victim was again ordered down on the floor where the suspect sat on her back to hold her in place and said again,"Don't worry, wrong place, wrong person."

According to the victim, the next thing she remembered was one of the suspects coming into the hallway carrying a gun safe and asking what it was. The victim told the suspects to take the gun safe since her husband, who was working, had the keys.

After the suspects took the victim's purse and wallet, they left through the front door, according to the victim.

The woman said she immediately got up and went to check on her children. The woman brought her children to the hallway and counted to ten to make sure that the suspects were gone before they went outside.

The victim and her children then ran to the neighbor's house across the street and called 911.

After authorities responded, a deputy who was patrolling the Haven Oaks apartment complex reported seeing several men jump out of a vehicle and run. Other deputies then responded and set up a perimeter with a K-9 brought to track the men.

At that time, authorities say they were unable to find the men.
