NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The second suspect in a North Charleston armed robbery has been booked in jail after receiving medical attention.

Carlyle Cohen, 22, has been charged with kidnapping and armed robbery.

A bond court judge set a $150,000 surety bond for Cohen Saturday morning.

James Creason,17, was already charged by North Charleston police with armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.

The charges stem from a reported armed robbery at the Spinx gas station in the 4800 block of Ashley Phosphate Road Wednesday morning.

Shots were exchanged between officers who responded to a distress call and then witnessed the armed robbery in progress, and the two suspects, North Charleston Deputy Police Chief David Cheatle said.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is investigating the shooting incident, which is standard procedure whenever a South Carolina law enforcement officer fires his weapon.

No one else was injured in the incident, police said.

A bond court judge set a $250,000 surety bond for Creason Wednesday morning.

The suspects involved matched the descriptions of an armed robbery call earlier Wednesday morning at the Circle K in the 7500 block of Dorchester Road, Cheatle said.
