Investigators arrest Mount Pleasant man for armed robbery

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Investigators have arrested a 20-year-old Mount Pleasant man for an armed robbery.

Authorities arrested Tion Kenyote Stubbs.

The arrest stems from an investigation on Sunday night when officers responded to an armed robbery on Beresford Court.

The 18-year-old victim said she had just got back in town and had her friend drive her to meet Stubbs, who police say is a friend of the victim's.

A police report states, when the victim got out of the vehicle to speak to Stubbs, she saw another person approach her, point a gun at her and demand all of her money.

During the incident, the victim reported that she pepper sprayed both of the subjects and herself.

According to the victim, after the subjects took some items, they took off in a wooded area behind Beresford Court.

The victim then ran back to the vehicle and told her friend what happened. Officers say the victim had dirt marks on her arms and her eyes were blood shot from the pepper spray.

Authorities say the victim identified the subjects involved.

Investigators say K-9 units tracked one of the subjects to the back door of a restaurant where Stubbs is known to work.

The manager of the business said Stubbs was involved in a heated argument earlier, left for a while and returned some time after.

Officers say they found Stubbs in the restaurant's kitchen and transported him to the victim where she identified him as one of the suspects.

Police are continuing the investigation.
