NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Summerville Police say they will charge a man already in custody in connection with a North Charleston bank robbery with a bank robbery in their jurisdiction earlier this month.

North Charleston Police arrested 38-year-old Brett Alan Brown of Summerville Friday night at 9:30 p.m. at the Relax Inn Hotel on Ashley Phosphate Road following the robbery of a Bank of America earlier that day. Police say Brown confessed to the robbery of a Summerville BB&T bank during their interview with him.

North Charleston Police say shortly before 1 p.m. officers responded to the Bank of America at 5900 Core Drive in reference to a robbery. 

Employees told officers that a white male subject approached the teller and demanded money.  According to the incident report, the subject threatened the teller multiple times after warning her not to trigger an alarm. The teller told police the subject displayed a knife under his arm and that she complied with him. The suspect exited the bank with an undetermined amount of money, the report states. 

According to police, the suspect fled on foot and was seen getting into a red vehicle with numerous bumper stickers on the back. Police say that vehicle was located on Marson Street unoccupied.  Investigators say the white male was then seen leaving Marson Street with a black male driving an unknown make and model Grey colored vehicle.

In the Summerville incident, the robbery occurred around 12:40 p.m. on April 17 at the BB&T bank on 10105 Dorchester Road. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect fled the scene .Officials say the suspect did not show a weapon, but did make threats to harm employees.

Police are continuing the investigation.

On Sunday, a Charleston County judge set a $25,000 bond for Brown for the North Charleston robbery.
