Charleston police arrested two men Thursday in connection with an unrelated burglary and armed robbery.

The burglary happened about 12:30 a.m. Thursday at an apartment at 147 Church St.

The victim told police he and a friend were returning home when they saw two suspects walking out of the victim's apartment carrying two computers and a bottle of vodka. The victim chased one of the suspects, according to an incident report.

The victim's friend told another friend what happened, and together they drove after the pair in a car. The victim stopped running after the suspects when he found his property lying on the ground.

The pair in the car kept driving after one of the suspects until one of them got out of the car and tackled the suspect, punching him in the face multiple times. The suspect was led back to the victim's home until police arrived.

Police charged Allen F. Young, 23, with first-degree burglary.

The robbery happened about 11:18 p.m. Wednesday at an apartment building on 900 King St.

The victim told police that he was trying to get his bicycle inside the building when a man volunteered to hold the door for him. The man followed the victim into the building and placed an object, possibly a wrench or a screwdriver, against the victim's back, according to an incident report.

The suspect then demanded money and tore the victim's shirt. He took off with $20 from the victim's pocket. Police arrived and searched the area.

Officer Adam Thayer saw a man matching the suspect's description standing in front of another apartment building, according to Charles Francis, public information officer.

Police charged Nathaniel Nelson, 42, of Margate Circle in Goose Creek with armed robbery.
