NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - North Charleston police say they have arrested two suspects who robbed two men at gunpoint in the backyard of a home in Dorchester Terrace.

Brandon "Lil Gee" Grayer, 24, and Samuel Bolger, 20, have both been charged with armed robbery. Additionally, Bolger was charged with a probation violation.

According to an incident report, the two victims met Grayer at a home on S. Allen Drive just before 4:30 p.m. on July 23. After a back and forth of speaking with the suspect and waiting in the car as the suspect went inside, Grayer told the victims to walk with him to a house down the street.

Police say Grayer and Bolger led the victims to the backyard of a house on S. Allen Drive, where both suspects pulled out handguns and told them to hand over everything they had. The victims were then told to put their faces in the dirt and not look up.

The report states once the victims realized the suspects ran away, they ran to a home on Azalea Drive and called 911.

A witness at a home on S. Allen Drive was able to identify both suspects and provided officers with names, police say.

The following day, police say they found Bolger sitting on the front porch of a home on Harvey Street around 3:30 p.m. Bolger gave officers his name, and was then arrested.

A report states North Charleston police saw Grayer sitting on the front porch of his home on Cambridge Avenue on Wednesday.

Police say Grayer ran into the home when they stopped at the home. He attempted to run out the back of the house but ran back inside after officers circled around to the backyard.

Cops say Grayer was later found in the attic of the home, and was arrested after a brief fight with an officer.

Both suspects are being held at the Charleston County Detention Center. Grayer's bond was set at $50,000, while Bolger's was set at $200,000.
