Suspect tackled, arrested in Charleston home invasion
Charleston police arrested one man and are searching for a second in connection with a home invasion that happened Saturday on the peninsula.
Several College of Charleston Public Safety officers spotted three men chasing a fourth man on Coming Street shortly before 1 p.m., a Charleston Police report states.
The three men yelled to the officers that they had been robbed.
The officers helped the men tackle the accused robber to the ground and held him until Charleston police arrived, the report states.
Marquis Grampus, 19, of North Romney Street, is charged with three counts of armed robbery, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, according to the report.
Grampus and a second man are accused of entering a Coming Street home and robbing its residents with a .25-caliber pistol, police said.
The pistol was found at the scene, along with three cell phones, according to the report.
Two video game consoles and several items of clothing were also reported stolen.
Grampus was held at the Charleston County jail in lieu of $450,000 bail, court records show.
The second suspect in the case had not been located Monday, police spokesman Charles Francis said.
Anyone with information on that person can call Crime Stoppers at 554-111.
