WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - A teenager is behind bars after police say he pulled out a gun and robbed his friend while getting his hair done.

Antwon Rashad Brown, 18, was arrested just before noon on Wednesday, according to Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis.

The victim said he was on Saint Clair Drive at 2 p.m. on Dec. 23 when his friend, Brown, pulled out a gun and pointed it at the victim.

Authorities say Brown, who was "getting his dreads twisted," then demanded that the victim give him all his money and phone.

Investigators say the suspect then took the items and left the home.

Brown is being held in the Charleston County Detention Center. Police say the investigation is ongoing.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story indicated Brown was a student at West Ashley High School.  Police now say that information was found on the incident report due to a clerical error.  Brown is not, and never was, a student of West Ashley High School.
