CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston police have arrested three men after an employee at a Chinese restaurant called police when a suspicious delivery order was placed Wednesday night.

Jonathan Hymes, 21, Benjamin Singleton, 21, and Jo'var Heyward, 17, were arrested Wednesday night and charged with conspiracy to commit strong armed robbery, attempted strong armed robbery and trespassing.

According to a report, a caller placed a delivery order to a Balsam Street address at the Chine Run Restaurant at 3025 Ashley Town Center around 9 p.m. Wednesday. The employee who answered the phone recognized the order as being similar to the one placed on September 12, in which an employee was robbed.

Police say the employee who took the order then called Charleston police. Officers were then sent to Balsam Street to patrol the area.

A report states that when officers arrived, several men were spotted running through the backyard of 1644 Balsam Street and onto a bike path. Police were able to capture and arrest the suspects.

Police say one of the suspects had a white T-shirt wrapped around his head covering above his eye and from the nose down.

The three suspects are being held in the Al Cannon Detention Center.

In the September 12 armed robbery, an employee was robbed by two men on Cashew Street while delivering food around 10:30 p.m. Police say 22-year-old Valentino Hayward and 18-year-old Jerron Smith were arrested and charged with armed robbery.
