WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston police say the 24-year-old man who allegedly bit a woman three times during a robbery in West Ashley in May surrendered to authorities early Friday, one week after airing as a Live 5 News Most Wanted suspect.

24-year-old Dedric Middleton turned himself in at the Charleston Police Department shortly after midnight, authorities say.  He is being held in the Charleston County Detention Center.

Police say on May 22, Middleton attacked a woman at St, Andrews Garden Apartments West of the Ashley, and took her cell phone.

 "Threw her to the ground, bit her at least three times and stole a $400 cell phone from her," said Charleston Police Cpl. Fred Bowie.

Bowie said the victim was not seriously hurt.

"Certainly not life threatening but certainly something to be concerned about," Bowie explained. "When you get punched around a couple of times, the potential certainly is there to be hurt seriously."

Bowie said the victim picked Middleton out of a photo lineup.

"He wanted that phone awfully bad to be willing to risk going to jail for a long period of time just to get a cell phone."
