CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators have arrested a suspect accused of robbing a man at gun point in downtown Charleston. 

The Charleston Police Department arrested 22-year-old Rodney Pinckney.

The victim said two men, one of whom was armed with a gun, robbed him. 

According to police, one of the suspects put the gun to the victim's head and demanded his wallet and money. 

The suspects then fled the scene.
