Charleston police have arrested a second suspect for an attempted holdup on June 28 at a Subway restaurant on Magnolia Road.
Derrick Andreas Sergenton, 24, of Martha Drive in North Charleston, is charged with attempted armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, police spokesman Charles Francis said.
Sergenton, who was arrested Tuesday in North Charleston, is being held in the Al Cannon Detention Center, Francis said.
The incident began about 7:45 p.m. when a man entered the Subway at 13 Magnolia Road and asked an employee several questions and then left. A few minutes later, someone called the business several times without saying anything, police said.
Then, another man armed with a handgun entered the business and unsuccessfully tried to remove money from the cash register. He then left the restaurant.
The first arrest in the case was made on July 16 when Trainy Michelle Fishburne, 34, of Kelley Street in North Charleston, was taken into custody. Fishburne is charged with attempted armed robbery and she is being held in the Al Cannon Detention Center.
The investigation revealed that Fishburne’s cellular telephone was used to call the restaurant, Francis said. It also revealed that she drove the getaway vehicle used in the holdup attempt, he said.
The case remains under investigation, Francis said.
