CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police say the second suspect wanted for a home invasion that happened at an apartment on the east side of downtown Charleston this week has surrendered to authorities.

Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said 35-year-old Sherrone Donell Carson, of North Charleston, turned himself in to police Friday night.

Police have already arrested 25-year-old Robert Coaxum for the incident and charged him with armed robbery, first-degree burglary, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Carson will face the same charges, Francis said.

The home invasion happened at 43 Cooper Street around 8:15 p.m., according to a Charleston Police Department incident report.

Police spokesman Charles Francis said Coaxum and two other men barged into a man's apartment armed with handguns and demanded money. Francis said Coaxum and the other suspects stole money and electronics before fleeing.

The incident report states the victim saw the suspects drive off in a gold-colored four-door sedan, possibly a Chrysler 300.

Authorities are looking for a third suspect in the incident.

If you have any information regarding the crime, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
