A man who was accused of biting and robbing a clerk a couple months ago now is accused of holding up another clerk with pepper spray.
A clerk at the Cross Convenience Store at 1883 Old Highway Six said a man used pepper spray on her and then grabbed the cash register when she fled Jan. 8. The man was caught on the store’s surveillance video, and local media outlets publicized the images.
A tip from a person who saw media coverage of the robbery led deputies to make an arrest, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Dan Moon said.
Michael Fennick Jr., 37, of Moncks Corner was arrested Sunday night and charged with strong-arm robbery and third-degree assault and battery. He was being held in the Berkeley County jail.
Fennick was arrested in November after a clerk at the Kangaroo gas station on Cypress Gardens Road said a man bit him trying to grab money out of the cash register. That incident was also caught on video.
Fennick was arrested and charged with strong-armed robbery. Fennick was out of jail on bail from that charge when he was arrested again Sunday.
